Mounting MinnKota quick release mount to ‘93 Bonefisher bow

I’m looking to install a trolling motor to the bow of my ‘93 Bonefisher.  Has anyone done this and have any tips?  I’m thinking I’ll need some sort of backing plate under the the deck to prevent cracking.  Any suggestions on where to mount the plug?  I’m also planning on keeping the battery in the bow as well to keep as much weight forward as possible as my boat squats a little as is. The more weight I get on the bow, it seems my draft is better.  Any tips will be appreciated!  I will move this thread to the vintage hewes page if I am supposed to! Thanks!

Most Hewes have a reinforcement plate in the bow built in. Not sure about your specific year, but you could check with Hewes. I have an 18' Redfisher and it has one. I mounted my plug below deck.
