Minn Kota's Engine Mount motors are ideal for fishing boats, or for turning recreational boats (like runabouts or pontoons) into fishing boats. The EM motor mounts permanently on the cavitation plate of our outboard or I/O lower unit, keeping the deck and transom of the boat clear. No stowing or deploying required. Once on plane, the EM rides completely out of the water, and will not interfere with the normal performance of your boat or engine.
- Single or dual motor composite mounting bracket has strength properties similar to aluminum
- Control module features potted electronics sealed into an aluminum housing for optimal protection against heat and water damage
- Corded control can be handheld or mounted at the helm, and includes an 18' cord
- All mounting hardware included, for easy installation
- Manufacturer's 2-year warranty

I installed this on a 1990 Chris Craft 177 (19ft) bow rider
I loved the fact that I did not have to have any thing in the bow that passengers could get hurt on or make any holes not to mention the eye sore they are on a open bow boat!
I have the 55lb thrust version it worked flawlessly in forward and reverse even in choppy water it still preformed well! it is simple enough my 13 year old use to use it and get me where I wanted to be
Simple hand tools are really only needed a socket swivel joint does make it a little easier, if you take your time and run the wiring right you will have a nice clean installation

i spent the day at Stockton Lake, Stockton, Mo. The wind kept me from fishing brushpiles so I decided to try my new engine mount Minn Kota trolling motor. I am very pleased with the operation of this system. It is very easy to control the boat and maintain trolling speeds in decimals. Love this motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JWHRanger Great gas saver
I have an older boat, and the motor does not always cooperate. I have run into the dock when the boat dies trying to get into reverse. I have taken my boat to the shop several times and nothing really helps. I also boat on a river where there are always logs next to shore and something to ding the prop on.
Now I can just use the trolling motor from the captains chair to get away from the dock and to get back to the dock. Its great and takes away alot of the frustration that comes with aligning the boat on the trailer properly. We also troll alot, either fishing or just enjoying the water. Now I save a ton of gas and wear and tear on my motor by just running my trolling motor.
Great product, easy install.

Installed on 1998 Sea Ray 190 bowrider. Removed lower unit to mount as close to engine as possible as per instructions. Would make a template and drill from the bottom of the cavitation plate but had to service seals anyways. Mounting hardware slightly interferes with trim tab. Ran today on slight breeze and no chop. Max speed was 3.5 mph. As mentioned in other reviews, reverse is worthless. Cannot get into shallows as outdrive must be all the way down to operate. Does have a significant impact on getting on plane and causes cavitation in sharp turns. All in all, it has delivered trolling speed to my boat but at the cost of performance of normal operation. Yes I can still get on plane but am limited to the trim being all the way up. I prefer it a bit down with nose up in chop and this is not going to be possible. My biggest apprehension (owned the unit for 3 weeks before installing) with installing was the relative long path to removal and getting back to normal on the anti-cavitationplate if I didn't like it. Hoping that pulling the tube is still an option. If not, I might as well just by a fishing boat.
