    Default Raft Motor Mounts

    I am looking for ideas for homemade motor mounts for rafts. I have seen some creative ones on the river before! Post pictures of your homemade motor mounts. Any advice is also welcome.

    That looks good. Did you do the welding or have a shop do it? I like how it is out further, so that when you pull the motor up its not so close to the boat.
    Got a few of it down

    I had a shop do the welding. The motor is well out of the way when in the up position. It is very easy to take off if you are not going to use a motor.

    skeeter,

    Have you used the raft yet with a motor? What size motor? What kind of performance and experiences would you recommend to someone like me who is looking at doing the same thing to his round boat.

    thanks,

    Rick

    I use a 9.9 horse motor. I have not had any problems with it. Used it to pull a cataraft across skilak a couple years ago and had no problems. We can do the trip from the kenai to upper skilak campground in about an hour.
