When I was your age, my duck hunting bud and I would throw my dad's old flat bottom in the back of the truck. We would tie it in with a rope and head to the lake for a little duck hunting. When we got there, we would slide the boat in the lake, clamp on the Minn Kota, and take the cranking battery off the truck to use on the trolling motor. It nearly always worked out.
