Installed a second swivel seat upfront and also made a stick steer set up for my trolling motor. Plus a new trailer. It's a lot of fun and easy to fish from now. Love it. Hope to see yall out there

Those are some very nice upgrades!

The trolling motor changes ought to help you "hold position" better.

Where do you prefer to put in at Benbrook?

Very nice, Fish. How 'bout a pic of the other side of the motor so we can see how you made the other end of the steering system?

If I could offer a slight bit of advice, put a 90 degree fitting on top of the shaft to point your wiring forward and offer a bit more waterproofing. Otherwise, your work looks absolutely awesome!

Hey brad. Yes it helps hold position a lot better. I had it mounted on the side and the turning was terrible. Muchuch better now. I can go in and out of trees no problem. I left the lever kinda tight and put a big foot switch in so now I get a lot more fishing time in. I live by mustang park so that's where I tend to go. I can fish the trees there and work my way over to rockie creek and fish the rocks there.

Artie. I do plan on putting on a 90 but I did put some sealant in it to prevent water from getting in it. I will post some up close pics of the motor side tomorow. I put a hinge off a screen door that the shock connects to to slow the door down.
