    Is anyone suing a shaft mount trolling motor? I am getting ready to install one on my Key West 1900 CC bay boat. It was about my only option due to the bow rail.

    I tried to figure out how to mount a bow mount that would clear the rail but it would have taken a very tricky, cumbersom, and ugly bracket.

    If anyone knows something I do not about installing a bow mount trolling motor on a boat with a bow rail, I would sure like to hear it.

    Also, I sure would like to hear your opinions concerning a shaft mount trolling motor, especially the likes, dislikes and the tricks of operation.

    Thanks, Grits
