Minn Kota Ram Mount
« on: May 14, 2011, 10:58 AM »
For you guys that have a MinnKota Terrova I-Pilot trolling motor (I absolutely love mine) I very strongly reccommend purchasing a Ram mount trollong motor stabilizer and putting it on your boat. My good friend, Don Kammerzal, had his Terrova deploy itself last Saturday at approx. 30 mph and it ripped it right off the boat and gone! All he had left was the mount and the plug. For $50 this would not have happened. Hawk, please get one if you already haven't. ........Art

Art, do you know if he had the collar on the troll motor down and tightened? I had not been doing that when on the lake but after hearing about the unscheduled deployment I have started putting the color down and tightening it when on the lake and when the boat is trailered etc.

oh how has fishing been?

RAM Mounting Systems RAM-B-149Z-GA12U It comes with everything you need plus some extra. I could not find just the mount online.

It didn't work. Had to go with plan "B". But it will work for my bow fish finder.
