    Sea anchor my freind! Make your self a sea anchor! Great navagational tool and you can fine tune your speed for trolling. Check out my post in the Do it yourself section.

    I did that one time, and likely my tohatsu 15 is same size as your 20, and my Albany transom might be same size as your HB.

    I went 40 miles with them both on there but then got a little worried the outboard clamps didn't get enough bite so I haven't since. But you can do it in a pinch for sure.

    On my old Sears AL double ender I mounted the electic troller on the side when I needed/wanted it. Turned it around so the handle pointed at me and ran it in reverse. MinnKota 35lb, quite a bit of vertical adjustment in the shaft and the head went full around. May not work for you.
