I have a 16' War eagle with a 30HP Honda on it and It is a great fishing rig. The boat has a "pro deck " on it so I mounted the stick steering just behind the pro-deck, that way the remote controls & steering are out of your way while fishing. Get to your fishing spot-stand up-take one step up on the deck- sit down and go to catching. BTW you can fish in it all day and not even get your feet wet with the drain plug pulled---Don't ask me how I know!!!!
