    Shuttle slide trolling motor mount

    My boat has a half door so I mounted it in the center of the boat. Its not ideal but I couldn't find a way to do it without needing to remove it each time I put it on the trailer.

    RAILBLAZA Pontoon Boat Square Rail Mount Just got one of these to mount my fish finder to the rail side of my console. Works well and seems very secure.

    Shuttle slide trolling motor mount

    I wasn't able to use it because I didn't have enough front deck space. It's a very nice looking product and I definitely would have used it if I had the space.

    What did you name your boat?

    1st boat was an Avalon with a 9.9hp called "Jersey Creeper". 2nd boat was an older boat in not the best shape named "uncertainty " we weren't certain if it would start or float. We got our 3rd boat mid August no name as of yet but we'll figure it out.

    Picked up the new boat

    I live in NJ. I will be trailering to round valley reservoir near my home. I plan on taking it to a few other lakes a little further away and vacations.

    Trolling Motor Help Needed

    I found yesterday. Looks like a great product. They even put me in contact with someone who mounted one on his pontoon boat. I'm going to give it a try.

    Shuttle slide trolling motor mount

    I think I have seen pics of your install. Looks sharp and up until an hour ago I was going to copy your idea. I may reach out to you with a few questions on hw you did it if you don't mind.

    Shuttle slide trolling motor mount

    Came across this mount today. Couldn't find any pics of one mounted to a pontoon. It is mentioned on this site once but no directly. I want my trolling motor to go off the side but would hate having it stick out when docking. This would work but can't find many reviews. I would hate to drill...

    Shale stone interior color

    SandSandstone is the one. Thanks for the replys. The boat is a 2019 S Series 188FS in sunset red with a 2020 Yamaha 25hp high thrust and a 2020 shorelander trailer. I should have it in about 2 weeks.

    New front gate?

    I'm buying a leftover 2019 S Series 188FS and it has the half front gate to accommodate a trolling motor. I dont intend on mounting it centered. I also have a 2 year old and would much rather have a full gate not to mention it looks much better. Anyone know if I can easily get a replacement...

    Help pick a model

    Hi, I live in NJ and the 2 nearest lakes to me are 9.9hp restricted (lame). Almost everyone I know gets a 20hp and changes the decals to 9.9. I had a 14' Avalon pontoon with a 9.9 merc on it about 9 years ago. I could get about 8mph with that boat. I am looking to get S model 168 SF or the 188...
