Has anyone mounted a bow mount to there kayak? I am thinking about adding Motorguide ti3 for big water or river fishing. My ride is a Jackson Big Rig.

That is a ton of weight/bulk to add to a kayak. Also bow mounts aren't meant to be easily removed. Their installation is permanent for the most part.

It's an idea that seems to work on first glance, but is killed off pretty quickly when you look into it.

https://youtu.be/ETmQjntkYWo This is the set up I have found. The Big Rig has like a 450 to 500 lb capacity and I do not load a lot of gear. just was checking if anyone tried it or if I am the Guinea pig. I think this motor is 45 lbs plus the battery.

I paddle a Big Rig as well. The bow doesn't really have a good spot to mount a trolling motor. That big front hatch takes up most of the front. The stern, however, offers some options. There are mounting holes for a PowerPole setup that could be used for a trolling motor.

The issue I see is deploying the trolling motor and pulling it back up. I personally don't have the balance and sometimes struggle getting around my 18' boat with an extra guy and gear laying around.
