Mounting a trolling motor on my bowrider was tricky because of the slopping, curvy gunhale and the railing there upon. The only flat spot on the bow gunwale was where the running lights are. So, this was going to require relocating the lights further forward and down a step.
I cut a 6" diameter disc out of 3/4" UHMW polyethylene to raise the trolling motor base up past the rim of the bow seating area. This would also provide a low friction surface for the base to pivot on.
