Trolling motor

Okay, 60 inch shaft seems unanimous and I do fish heavy current so 112 lbs thrust probably way to go. Next question - how does the long shaft affect docking? A minor consideration on my johnboat, but the trolling motor is much shorter.  Also, any special mounting considerations?

This is how the dealer rigged it, couldn't believe it.  The first thing I did when I got home was move it inside the gunnels.  I knew the first wake at the boat ramp while getting the truck would take it out.  I didn't even say anything when I picked it up, what were they thinking.

Wow...yes, that angle really has the motor hanging out there is harms way.  I worked with mine at several different angles for that same reason, finally got the motor "inside" of the outer edge of rail...and then drilled the holes for the bracket. I'm not sure you can tell in my pic, but the head of motor is inside of that edge of bow rail.

Looks like we have the same bracket also.
