Before buying this product I read all of the reviews and was a little skepticle. The reviews stated they had issues with the mount when used with the larger motors as the mount would slide loose when under power in a turn.
Well being an engineer I immediately had an idea so I ordered the mount.
Before I installed the mount I put a piece of non-skid tape (the type used on out door stairs) on the boat and then mounted the motor to it.
Well I have been using it and even tried to get the mount to shift but it holds fast!
Maybe the manufacturer shoud include a strip of this tape with the mount.
I highly recomend this product.

I bought this thing for my 12' alum boat to be used as a front mount for an Endura 55# motor. Speeds 1-3 is ok. Speeds 4 - 5 will work itself out of the bracket. I added a safety halyard around my motor just in case it works itself off the bracket. A metal unit would be better instead of "high impact plastic."

Bought first one and it was cracked right out of box! Returned it for a new one and while attempting to attach it to boat it also cracked. Can not tighten enough to hold on boat without breaking. ended up making my own, waste of money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by rick5734 nice but not useable on my jon boat
The ez mount was not made for my boat being made in 2007, probably work fine for boats made prior to 2007.

yes, in fact it is pictured on a v bow boat in one of the pictures, but it will have to be mounted to the side of the grab handle or bow brace in the front tip of the bow. the concern with this, is that if you stand or sit in the middle of the front of your boat to fish, the mount will position your trolling motors handle off to one side a bit and may cause difficulty in turning sharply to one side because the handle will be farther away from you. this is especially the case when a long handle extension is used, but will be less of an issue if you use your handle without an extension. considering this, in my opinion It still looks like the best option out there. I have tried the best mounts out there before this, and will be ordering this myself, because after all, a rugged and secure mount is top priority, especially with higher powered motors, and this one looks to be the first to offer such a connection. I hope this helps, good luck!
If I were to use this to mount my transom mounted trolling motor to the bow, wouldn't the speed contol handle then be pointed away from me (out beyond the bow)? Maybe I'm missing something or misunderstanding the concept. Please advise.
If you have a Minn Kota Endura motor, there is a nut and bolt under the top of the motor where the handle assembly sits on the shaft. Take the bolt out, rotate the head 180 degrees and re-insert the bolt and tighten.
