Anyone have experience mounting a trolling motor with stainless steel toggle bolts OR the rubber isolator bolt packs ?

If so, would you recommend using either option based on your experience?

Thank you.

no on the rubber isolator it will move to much it needs to be solid mounted

Use both, all the mounts I've seen cut the top off the isolator to use as a cushion, then bolt with stainless hardware.

use stainless steel bolts or screws with large washers on the bottom with brass nuts

If you can't access underneath, these are what I use. https://www.lowes.com/pd/TOGGLER-2-...-Drywall-Anchor-Screws-Included/3183821#

I don't know what that size is but the same type and they have a heavy duty one. Change bolts out to stainless bolts.
