    Wink Minn Kota Terrova Pull Rope

    Hello fellow fishermen, on our boat we have a Minn Kota Terrova. It has been a great trolling motor and love it so far, however over the past few years it has been a hassle of pulling the thing up because you have to bend all of the way over and lug that heavy thing up out of the water. We have been looking on sites such as Tackle Warehouse and cant seem to find anything that would work for us. We have seen the new models that have the lift assist, if they have an aftermarket one of those that would work as well. Anything that would assist in pulling the big thing up. I added a picture so you can see what i'm talking about.

    You would almost need some kind of cup that would latch around the top part of the shaft.

    Thanks geo fisher but i did a little research on it and no it wouldn't work. However while doing the research I went the TH marine website and found a webpage about a pull rope for a wireless motor but they didn't have any options to buy it. I'm thinking there may be a way that I would make something where I could get some kind of round clamp from the hardware store and one of TH marine's replacement ropes and make one.

    If you just need a longer rope, maybe you could replace the rope with cable? I replaced my rope on my Fortex with a cable and two cable ferrule's I picked up at Lowe's or Home Depot. I was able to use my existing handle and it wasn't hard to do. That takes the "stretch" of the cord out and you wouldn't have to been over, just a thought!

    The problem is that we have a terrova which doesn't have a pull rope and I was wondering if anyone made an aftermarket bracket for it that would allow us to have one. I'm now thinking of making some type of bracket for it then buying TH marines replacement cable and attaching it to the bracket.
