Default FS128T Build

Well missed my FS128T so bad I went back on bought 2 more. While at bass pro picked up a 30lb minn kota and a lowrance FF Mark 5 pro. And will be rigging them up soon. But any advice/lessons learned would be appreciated greatly.

Price matched with Academy and a military discount and award points for buying the kayaks. Set up with battery was less than 250 total.

Instead of mounting the trolling motor on the side, I would mount it on the back and get an extended handle.

Or mount to the back, set up a rudder system to steer the trolling motor. Then take the trolling motor head off the arm. Mount the brain within arms reach. Run the cables through the body

Yup like these guys are saying mount that motor on the back and rig up a way to steer it from the front. Dont forget to register the yak. I love mine with a trolling motor it really expands your fishing possibilities!

Check out this guys setup. Crisp, Clean and easy to use from what I can tell. I know it a completely different boat but you see the idea. Around the 3 min mark he goes into the trolling motor details.

Well with my job and all the build is coming along slowly. Got the motor mounted and cut. And rigged the steering cables up. Seat controlled. Thanks for the advice so far guys. It's still a work in progress.....
