Hey Marcus,

Great looking custom ride man! When are you going to take me fishing in it? ;-)

Question: I notice that you've mounted your electric trolling motor so the shaft is port bow. Are you left-handed? The reason I ask is that I've fished with a few buddies who are right-handed, as I am, but they mounted the motor port instead of starboard and that means pulling the motor using the left or non-dominant hand. It made it a lot more difficult for me to pull it for them since I'm right-handed. You release the catch latch with the right hand and pull the motor up with the left (in this case). Once you get it moving up you can use both hands but it was still awkward and more difficult.

I've got mine mounted so the shaft pulls to starboard and it's much easier since I pull it with my dominant hand.

Am I missing something; or am I just a wimp? :-)

Great boat regardless and I hope you enjoy it for at least as long as I did my old Prim Time - 21 years...
