    Folks, I just purchased a new 1999 14.2. I am considering installing a Minn Kota motor on the stern, either a 36 or 40. I am asking your opinions on battery location and size. Obviously, at the stern is the easiest, but least attractive and most obtrusive. Is it worth trying to install it in the cuddy cabin? How about weight displacement and waterline? What size motor and battery do you have/recommend? Lastly, and most important, what type of installation do you use, or do you just sit the battery on the cockpit floor and hope for the best? All information is welcomed. I am visiting my sister in Baltimore, and am anxious to get back to Dallas and get her splashed (the boat, not my sister).undefined
