The Minn Kota Trolling Motors Fortrex Bow-Mount Foot Control is designed to withstand tough sea conditions. It features a Mono-arm design, and is made of extruded, anodized aluminum for toughness and long-lasting use. This motor uses counter-tension stabilizer that works with integrated spring to apply force with reduced steering torque to ensure noiseless operation. Its patented Lift-Assist design uses stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring that lets you easily move in and out of water easily.

  • Innovative Mono-arm design
  • Patented Lift-assist design
  • Uses counter-tension stabilizer for a quiet operation

The motor and bow guard can be removed easily. The patented bow guard has a dual bearing system to ensure noiseless working and also to offer better breakaways at any angle. Thanks to the ultra-responsive foot pedal, it is easy to operate and delivers accurate speed control. It also has a digital maximizer that controls the amount of power supply to extend the life of battery. The motor shaft is made of composite material to prevent rust, break and corrosion. Its built-in large windings and commutators allow easy heat dissipation to ensure cool operation and extended motor life.

Video Transcript

Mike Gofron:
Hey welcome back to WalleyeWorkshop.com. We just pulled this bass porter here. It's my nephew's boat. He wants to upgrade and put a new trolling motor on here. This thing, we don't want to scratch it at all. She's an old one, but that's what we do here at Walleye Workshop, help guys out that need a new trolling motor. Scott's going to show us how to do it. He's a Minn Kota guy. Let's see what he can show us here.

Scott Duncan:
We're going to be putting in a new Minn Kota Fortrex on here for Jamie's bass boat. Never know what we're up to in here. I'll fix all kinds of old stuff, but these old boats are still good boats, so we're going to make some improvements and Jamie will have a good summer on the water.

The first thing we're going to do with this, we're going to tear the old one off then we'll get started on mounting the new one. Ready? Let's go.

One of the first things we need to do before we set it on the boat, line up the holes, we got to mount the main motor to the Minn Kota bracket. It's pretty simple. You just find a flat workspace, workbench, back your truck like I'm doing here. All you got to do is just set it up on here, line it up, and there's an Allen screw that goes right over the top, cap screw, and screw that right in.

Now that we've got the motor mounted to the bracket, we need to go ahead and attach the high pressure gas shock to the bracket as well. There's nothing but a threaded rod and bolt on both ends that will slide through the mounting bracket, through the shock, and out the other side. Each end gets a flathead screw. Each screw has a front lock attached to it.

Alright, before we go and drill the holes, just like when we mounted the Minn Kota on my Pro-V or the motor guide on Mike's. A couple things we want to keep in mind, on this Fortrex bow mount, as long as you've got the point of this bow mount over the bow, you'll be good to go. Just put a straight edge on there, make sure that is straight up and down from the bow, you'll have clearance when you drop the motor; same thing with the head of the unit. Make sure that's not overhanging the boat. You don't want to rip that off on the dock. That's it. We're ready to line up the holes and start drilling.

Because we're mounting this to a fiberglass boat, we're typically mounting our stuff to our aluminum bolts. It's carpeted. Typically, the Minn Kota's come with flat washers to put underneath the brackets so you don't scratch up the deck, but we can't get our hands in. The access panel's too small. With Mike running the motor guides, he's got a bunch of extra - it's like a molly, the nuts on the back side. It's rubber granite and almost like a blind rivet. That's what will hold the motor down underneath the deck without us having to stick our arms in there. Let's get at it.

Everything's mounted. The last thing we got to do here is just mount the prop. There's a shear pin that comes with each one of these; it’s probably a good idea to have an extra shear pin in the boat, and an extra prop, which we do. Just in case you hit a big rock, you can change around the water. It can ruin your whole day if you don't have it.

Alright, we got the prop mounted. Everything's pretty much done. Mike's little nephew Jamie, he left us without a graft so we can't hook up the universal sonar right now. He also left us without the plug, but we tested the voltage. We got 24 volts. This is a 24-volt, 80-pound thrust Minn Kota Fortrex. Once we get the rest of the parts, we'll hook up the universal sonar, and this thing should be good to go.

I'm fully confident it's going to work out fine for Jamie the rest of the summer. That's it for this show. Thanks for watching. We don't know what we're doing next week, but I'm sure it will be something fun so keep an eye on us. Later!

Q:
Does the one without the built in sonar have a round nose or will it look like the one pictured with the round down turned nose underneath ?
A:
This is without the Sonar and it is as pictured with that nose piece underneath the outer arm and installs into the base extrusion. Just as it is pictured is how the nose piece or ramp is installed.
