I never heard of anybody trying that, but used as a helper for the bow mount it sounds like the transom mount should probably work. It's an interesting solution and bound to be a lot cheaper than beefing up the bow mount.FishEyes said:Walking Eagle, I already have a 43lb bow mount but in a strong wind it barely moves my fairly heavy 16' boat. I'm thinking a little help from behind would get it going. Do you think I am right about that? Maybe I should be upgrading the bow mount instead but that's alot more $. Thanks for your help.
