Default Re: Wanted-transom troller

FishEyes,

Good luck and I hope you get your motor, but I wouldn't put much faith in a transom mounted motor getting you back in a wind storm. There is almost no way to steer it with the wind forcing the front end of the boat aside. A front mounted troller that pulls the boat through the water might have better luck.

I keep seeing a lot of trolling motors for sale cheap in the pawn shops, you might try some of those.

W. E.
