    Guys and gals :wink: I need your ideas here. I have a 24 foot toon and need a way to mount my trolling motor on the front. It has the casting deck out front with the two seats and the rail behind it and in front of it the outside little section all by its self has a rail around it and I don't like the way they mounted the trolling motor on it.
    Can I build an extension out from level with the deck and install it there. The open spot where you enter the toon is out. (cause my wife said so)

    Willard, I never though about where a trolling motor would go on a toon. If I can help you, just let me know and I will be there.

    Each of the trolling motor manufacturer's make a quick release plates that mount to the deck of the pontoon. When your ready to use your motor you pull it out from under the seat, or wherever it's stowed plug it in and start trolling. When your done you pull a lever to remove it and it stows away quickly.

    Good Luck :wink:



    (Edit: I just noticed there is too much winking going on in this thread. Someone is gonna think something is going on.)
