Trolling Motor Mount on fron to SIB

HI, new here, first post.
I just bought a Zodiac Bombard Typhoon 3.10 with inflatable floor and will be used for fishing in river or inshore fishing.
The reason for this post is because i have a 9.9 mercury 2 stroke main engine and have a 55 pound thrust trolling motor and would like to "glue" engine mounts on the front part of the boat via D-Rings and engine mounts. This way i could have the trolling motor on front and cast fishing with the trolling motor on the front part of the boat and when i am moving or traveling longer distances use the main engine or even to trolling fishing.
My question is is this doable, stick-glue mounts on the front part of the boat to place a engine mount to place the trolling motor there? i have seen it in another boat which is were i got this idea. The trolling motor weighs around 20 pounds.
here is were i saw this idea....




i await your comments,
felipe

Depending on the profile of your bow, could you make use of the old Avon Redcrest engine mount system?

Isn't there a potential issue of the mounting point being too high for the drive shaft to reach the water suitably?

I will be using a intex motor mount, will be gluing 4 d rings and 4 engine mounts to be sure that it would hold, but yes the trolling motor will reach the water for use...i just want to know if the engine mounts and d ring will hold the engine...the engine is light only 20 pounds. i dont go on choppy water only calm river water, so no bouncing when traveling. what is the best glue for this project that you can recommend?

Avoid one part glues. Use a quality 2 part.

Couldn't imagine going high speeds with that thing mounted bouncing around like that.

Someone has to come up with a better idea.
