i am getting a trolling motor for my mod3 and was woundering if anyone has any suggestions on battery placement. hoping someone has a suggestion that would be clean and secure. i tend to make things overly complicated so any help would be appreciated. thanks-dave
I use a class 45 marine deep cycle battery I picked up at Wal Mart for less than $50. It has served me well and provides hours of power for my Minn Kota 35. I mounted it forward slightly to port inside the cubby. It is in a battery box I picked up at the same time. It came with a strap and some mounting hardware that seem to hold it secure.
I added a fuse and ran the wires under the starboard seat to a plug in the back. When it is time to go, I mount the motor and plug it in and go.
