Where is my trolling motor?
DO NOT BUY THIS UNIY if you are inpatient and can't wait to get on the water!
Mounting the unit was simple on the bow of my Tahoe 195, I had some 1/2" White plastic material to bring the height above the lip on the deck.
The bracket shipped from a store in Wenatchee WA and they repackaged the unit without the original box that had the mounting template on it evidently. No worries, it was simple to understand.
My major beef is if you DO NOT follow the directions stating the need for the cotter pin or pad lock needing to be installed in the release pin, you can lose your trolling motor over the side of the boat. I know most of you are smarter than me, however in my haste to get on the lake this year I over looked that point and came very close to losing my motor.
Follow the instructions!
My fix until I can find a replacement pin is 4 -1/4" bolts held in with tape

Handy but overpriced
This is a handy piece of equipment if you want easy removal of your trolling motor. The trick is to get the 2 pieces level. Gave it 3 stars because it's way over priced.

So Far, So Good
There were a couple of other options available for a quick release bracket, however, I choose the expensive option because it seemed built better -- with less moving parts. The bracket uses a pull release with a cotta key, rather then a bolted wing nut -- that because it has to screw-in and out, seems it may have a tendency to strip-out or get lost very easily. Not so with this bracket. Even if the cotta key were to get lost (only removable part) it can work and anything that will fit through the hole will lock the bracket/trolling motor in place, and with less moving parts, it seems the best option for years of use.

I just bought a 2000 Wellcraft 16 fisherman and it had a RT55/SE on it. Wanting the I Pilot I quickly learned this wasn't just a head replacement. I had to buy the Whole thing new. Got a Riptide ST/55 w/ I pilot and planned to install. Now I found I dont have enough distance to clear the bow and was wondering 'for my boat will this bracket help me clear the front. Brian
I have attached the dimensions of the ST and the quick release plate you would have to measure and see if it fits. If you are still unsure you may have to contact the boat dealer to see how they normally install them. Thanks
