    trolling motor install on a sport deck

    Hi yall! New to the forum, been a visitor from time to time and thought this would be the place to get some ideas. I have a 2015 Stingray 198LX Sportdeck. My wonderful Dad, who will be 90 this year, gave to me all his fishing gear. ALL OF IT, lol... he wants to buy me a trolling motor so I will go fishing and use the gear. I'm all for it, it's just I'm not sure of a configuration for a trolling motor except for one mounted on the engine's lower unit (wow -- expensive and not many references/reviews out on the internet yet) or an install up front on the bow -- there is a small and sturdy door covering the front bow ladder that I could remove the ladder and install a bracket to mount the trolling motor. I would want something I could easily remove and stow away when not in use. I already have a dual battery setup, and Dad also says I'd need at least 90 lbs thrust. Anyone seen someone rig something up like this?

    Example is same make boat you have but different model. So I contact a Stingray dealer up around the great lakes and see what they say as most likely someone up there has done this
