Anyone have any suggestions on putting a trolling motor on the transom of a Hobie PA 14.

Ocump, Don't know if you've looked , but Ebay has had kits for PA14 that are reasonably priced as compared to the Hobie Evolve kits. I think most kits for the PA use the mirage drive well so the rudder can be used for steering. Also check out the installations on Youtube, lots of video's over there. Good luck!

Thanks for the info on Ebay, have looked but did not see a mounting bracket for any type trolling motor.
Have checked several such as Bassyak also, have an email to them to see if i can buy parts for mounting on transom.

Might have to get creative.

Thanks again

Rumor has it that Luther at YakAttack is coming out with several mounts for the PA's; micro anchor, trolling motors, etc. Not sure of a launch date, but if Power Pole gets the FAA to approve their Lithium battery soon, I would imagine that Luther would have his stuff shortly there after.

I have the bassyak trolling motor for five years and had the same question about mounting it on my Malibu and they told me they can mount to just about any yak did it myself was real easy to install 55 thrust

Have been in contact with Bassyak to ask if they could provide a system that would not allow the motor to turn the boat, I want to use the Hobie rudder. They have not come back to me yet. Hope this is not a sign of their attitude.

Thanks for the come back.
