Questions & Answers for Bass Pro Shops Bass Pro Shops Canoe Motor Mount

Question

does it mount either left or right side

I'm guessing yes, but does anyone know for sure? Can you mount the bracket so the motor can go on either the left or right side? Being right-handed, I think I would want to have the motor on my right, not on the left as it would be as shown in the photo on the website.

The bracket connects across the top of the canoe to the gunwhales at the back of the canoe. This bracket holds the wooden block beside your canoe for the motor to attach to.

answer 2
Why not just attach the motor to the transom of your rowboat? The boat is most certainly set up for that purpose. Unless you mount the bracket far forward, you would not be able to span from gunwale to gunwale, necessary for stability. Would not seem like that would be a productive place from which to drive the craft.

Question

will it unballance a plastic canoe

I was wondering if I were to add the minkota endura c2 38lb thrust on it, would it have a high chance of flipping the canoe or cause it to lean drastically to one side, since I have a sundolphin scout ss plastic canoe. the canoe does have a transom mount on the back but its too far for the enduras handle

Coincidentally, I use the same motor on my Golden Eagle which is more unstable than your Scout appears to be without a problem.

Yes, as long as your gunwales protrude toward the interior of the canoe (as is almost always the case), this mount will work with your canoe.

Question

Problem with water comming over the gunnel when using a 2HP Honda

I have a brand new long shaft, Honda 2HP outboard mounted on my 16 ft. Fiberglass Old Town Katahdin. The mounting bracket I am using is the Old Town bracket sold here. My problem is, when I go at a little faster rate of speed the engine shaft is causing a "wake" that then goes up the wall of the canoe and over the gunnel. The engine only weighs 26 lbs and my boat has a fairly flat bottom and sits high out of the water. How can I prevent this?

Same problem with my 2.5hp yamaha on 18' Grumman. Answer was simple. a piece of thin pliable plastic such as that from a 5 gal pail, cut to fit a 2ft long spray shield and attached with duct tape. worked like a charm.
