Minn Kota Fortrex Installation
« on: June 03, 2021, 11:12:03 AM »
I'm in the process of installing a new Minn Kota Fortrex on my bow.

Here are some initial pics of the boat with the old Maxxum removed and the Fortrex bracket sitting there waiting for me to check the holes and see if new ones need to be drilled.

So do they have the same footprint?
If you're too busy to go fishing you're too busy!!

@Jig Man To answer your question, yes. The footprint was exactly the same! This saved me a ton of work be4cause I didn't have to drill new holes, etc. Even the foot pedal had the same footprint, so bolting the pedal into the recessed tray was reasonably easy.

Here are some pics of the rest of the installation. I uploaded more pics at BassFishingPhotos.com, with detailed explanations for each one.

On a final note, I got to use it Saturday for a tournament. It performed flawlessly and I was more than happy with it!  (yes)
