Convert clamp-on troller to Folding bow-mount?

If you could, give me some details on the process of flipping the head as that would be optimal. It could get annoying having to remember to use it in reverse. Thanks.

Plastic Trim or Moulding

I would actually check at Lowes, Home Depot, or even an auto parts store for large rubber grommets, these are used to route wires through vehicle bulkheads (usually metal) and are to prevent the sharp metal from cutting the wire. If they have one large enough for your application, use it. Also check...

Convert clamp-on troller to Folding bow-mount?

Hey I'm no metal worker myself, I had the drill and grinder already, and I borrowed someone else's metal chop saw to cut everything, It took more thought than effort really.

Actually, it's some of a whole pile of stuff I removed from the boat when I bought it. The previous owner had attempted to fab up a floor and some storage with aluminum angle, U, and sheet, but failed miserably in his execution. So I tore it out when I got the boat, but saved it because I figured I'...

Here's a link to the trolling motor bracket if anyone is interested in how I made it.

Convert clamp-on troller to Folding bow-mount?

Next I made the folding arm and the mounting bracket. I didn't get into any specifics with mesurement on the arm, I kinda used trial and error. I found the arm should be half the length of the distance from the top of the sliding (top) bracket (with the motor in the folded position) to the top of th...
