  Trolling motor extension handle
  Posted by: Goobs on Aug-19-11 7:41 PM (EST)

Dear 3bear,

If you are using an electric trolling motor that has forward and reverse on the handle you might want to conside and extension handle.

That's how I run my Old Town Discovery 13. I am a big dude and I sit in the center seat and the boat is trimmed pretty darn well when I do that, even with the battery in the stern.

I do have plans on getting 6 gauge extension wires and mounting the battery in the bow but I haven't gotten around to it yet. I want to get some of those slick plugs I've seen so that I could still use the trolling motor on a shorter boat and not have to deal with 13 feet of extra wire.
