I recently acquired a Scout 175. Anybody have on with trolling motor mounted that can offer advice ?
Welcome back MrBob!
Can you elaborate?
You’ll get 100 answers on this. Start with your restrictions first. What’s your budget, estimated operating weight of your boat (dry weight plus gear/fishing buddies/fuel), and the average type of currents you’ll be dealing with (are you fishing in salt rivers or in the lakes?)
Only need to see if someone with a scout 175 has different way of bow mounting than I am planning.
Does the bow on the 175 resmble the 192
by chance? Can get you some pics of an install on a 192 later this afternoon if it’ll help. Bout all I got for something that specific. Oh yea, like Mixed said, welcome back!
They aren’t the same, the 175 has a narrow point and a narrow gunnel. Anchor locker is a factor as the handrail and light. Builders need to start shifting the light off center, saw a couple like that when shopping.
Thanks for the offer, I got it licked. Added an aluminum base plate on the deck to give support for front of mount and bolted to that
