Trolling motor on transom

Iíve a 650 zodiac and would love to have spot lock thatís available on bow mounted electric trolling motors for fishing purposes. Itís a pain in the butt to anchor and deal with the current etc... I can potentially build a bracket on my transom to mount a electric trolling motor. Anyone done this before or should I get a new boat?

Why not build something or have something built to bow mount it. I think you will have dramas trying to spot lock if its transom mounted unless you don't mind backing into the the wind and swell all the time..

I was looking at a step that can be mounted to bow tubes and would have to use a stock part which should provide room for the trolling motor. Anyone ever done this? Itís a pain in the but to andchor when fishing.

You can buy tubular metal transoms( designed for ďround tailĒ dinghies). They just fit over the tubes. I have seen them advertised somewhere recently, possibly for an Avon dinghy. Not sure if they would do the job, as you would need to attach a little way back from the bow, but might be worth a look, as it would be removable.
