A couple buddies and I recently upgraded from a 14' aluminum to a 16' center council "the salty swallow" and we are trying to find a bow mount trolling motor (foot con. or tiller) that would fit in the budget of a couple of college kids. All we need is something that can pull us through the kelp and keep us safe from the WALL. The boat is an old comercial Hull very similar to the old 16' mako's, pretty heavy and a pretty wide beam. Whats on your boat? any suggestions for ours?
