I used one for my bow-mount FF on my olde boat and it held up through some very rough, flat-bottom thrashing.

I still wonder if you have your collar down snug against the motor drive if that is enough, I have locked mine in and tried to pull it up and force it forward to deploy and it won't?

Fishless,The other reason for the mount is to keep the IPilot from bouncing around so much.

I'm thinking of getting a MinnKota Terrova trolling motor and saw this post about it deploying while underway.  I also saw a similar complaint on Bass Pro customer comments.  I want to make sure I get the correct stabilizer that works.  Fish Hawk or anyone, do you think cousinlll's recommended links would work?

Or this one?

This one still seems like I need to use a bungee cord or something as it looks like it just rests on that and doesn't prevent it from going up and deploying.

I ended up getting mine at BPS Tracker parts counter.
