I am looking at buying a canoe and mounting a trolling motor on it. Likely a 16.5 or 18' royalex canoe that will pull double duty on rivers in the Smoky Mountains and central lakes here in NC. Anyone got any ideas on where to mount a bracket?
Most pics seem to have the motor on the side, 4-5' from the back, near the rear seat. I am wondering how that would track and even considered making a mount for two 35-40 lb trolling motors, one on each side. Lots more power for bigger lakes than one motor as I had planned. That would also allow me to control boat direction well and skip the previous idea I had about installing a rear rudder (like on back of a saltwater kayak).
Any clever ideas for a stern mounting option?
Thanks for any comment.
