Nice boat! You did a real nice job on it. I really like the lights too, I never though of that.

Makes me jealous I can't get a boat for another two years until I get out of college and I have a place to keep it.

I just got a foot controlled trolling motor from my dad for free. Its an oler style but Ill tell you what, it looks like a stout beast. all metal design so I dont have to worry about breaking anything lol.

Its a Mariner trolling motor and the only thing I know about it is what I found on iboats:

Stowed position:



Operational postion:


Switching between the two, while on the water, may be interesting to put it mildly.

Step 1: Climb out on bow

Step 2: Release catch (marked by yellow arrow)


Step 3: release second catch (marked by yellow arrow)


Step 4: rotate various pieces into operational positions




I can definitely see myself going overboard trying to stow/un-stow this beast.

I love the work you've done on this. We did my friends up to look like a WWII fighter plane. We call it "Swamp Pig"
