kayak trolling motor

How I tricked out my kayak with a trolling motor. I reconfigured my Minn Kota 30 lb thrust trolling motor to mount on the stern of my kayak. This way I can cast without having to paddle. I can steer my kayak with my feet and installed a switch to control the motor. Yak up n go fishing. I state in the video the steering has turnbuckles. They are eye bolts with coupling nuts. A link to Redesigned trolling motor lift video. https://youtu.be/TL6WlX6T0eE A link to Unlisted trolling motor bracket measurements video. https://youtu.be/stX9JIeWn_M

No problem. Here is a simple way to steer also using a tiller arm.

I have my foot braces connected to the motor shaft with cables. Here is a video that shows it.

Thanks. That was my first video and I only had an old A-520 Canon with three minutes of video time.
So every three minutes I would have to stop and put the data on my computer to free up the camera storage then start again. Now I have a Ultra Pro X with 32 GB. LOL

Wayn, Gotta question for you, where did you buy the male and female plug for the wiring? Is it a 4 prong set up because I want to keep the reverse function on the motor? Thanks for your time Wayn.

 Sometimes the older stuff is way better than the new, plastic crap out there. Give me old school stuff any day and twice on Sunday.lol.
So I see what you did there and I appreciate the help, Wayn. Thank you.

On some jobs I go on they through a lot old parts away instead of trying to inventory them.
I am always looking for something useful to keep. The cable was something I kept. Here is one cable.

I have the same kayak and I'm in the process of mounting my trolling motor to the kayak and I ran into a problem. What size U-bolts are you using that go in between the rudder holder? Also what pipe size is the one you used to connect them. I'm a little confused because I done see how the u bolt can fit in between the two fins. Thank you

+SA Sportsman Since I hand made my bracket yours may have different measurements.Here is a link to a unlisted unedited video showing more on the mount itself and measurements. you may have to copy and paste it to your browser bar.
Maybe you could put one U bolt towards the back of the bracket and just use one bolt coming up in the narrow part of the rudder track. Three bolts should be plenty to hold it with the square spacer added.

Also check out my video on my redesigned trolling motor lift system if you want one.
If you have A Ocean kayak Drifter and have problems with your anchor trolley going over your lap or under the kayak look at my kayak on my channel art to see how I split my anchor trolley to prevent this.

Update: You can only tilt the trolling motor with the lift Mechanism but not lift it straight up.
I modified the lift system to work better. Here is the link. Yak up n go fishen.

thanks for the reply. one other question, what size or gauge aluminum did you use.
Wayn Jul
Wayn Jul - 6 years ago
+hunter T Just under 1/8"" maybe 14 gauge. I do not know what grade it is. I heated the aluminum
before I tried to bend it. Crossed my fingers it wouldn't crack. A welder can tell you what grade to use.
It was just a scrap piece I had. If you do this use leather gloves aluminum sheet is very sharp.

Great pic. Are you making the mounts to sell?
Wayn Jul
Wayn Jul - 6 years ago
+hunter T No not making any to sell. Just made it from scratch to see how much of this
build I could do myself from materials I already had. Also I would have to charge to much for the time
and material cost to make and sell them. you can buy a piece of aluminium and cut it with a jigsaw 
and bend it on a vice to the shape you want. That is how I did it. Thanks for watching. Yak up n go fishing.
