Wellcraft 160 CCF Trolling Motor Install

Postby KirkComer » Thu Aug 01, 2019 10:26 pm

Wanted to share my Minn Kota Riptide Terrova I-Pilot Link trolling motor installation. If anyone is looking to install a trolling motor on their 160 ccf this may be helpful to them. Note: I had to make a homemade mounting plate for the install to work good. I used 1/2" aluminum for the top plate and 1/4" aluminum for the backing plate. Other thicknesses or materials could have been used... it was just scraps we had lying around. We did powder coat the plates using a harbor freight powder coating machine and used stainless steel hardware to mount it. Put a little clear flex tape between the homemade mounting plate and the hull ust for a little protection. Anyway... hope this might help someone else with their install.

Thanks for the post. I have a 1992 20 fish and want to add a trolling motor. But I have a lewmar capstain and a bow roller. It will get crowded up there but some say it can be done. Why did you pick the MinKota and how is it working?
