How much battery capacity do you have? And is it wired into the main motor for charging?I have a 17' Montauk with the bow mount gps trolling motor and its a fishing machine in the sound. Use it hard all day and the battery still has half a charge at the end. It makes boat handling a non-issue and its super quiet. At this point I don't think I could fish without it! Snaped a couple photos of the setup, essentially just a quick release mounting block on the bow, the battery fits nicely in the bow anchor box.
