"Best Motor Mount I Ever Tried"
(customer review of Any Length)

"I used this motor mount today on my old town tripper canoe ,with a 40lb thrust minkota endura max . It is extremely strong , There was no flex ,at all , the clamp worked great very secure ,they did not loosen at even with the motor at full power. 20 years ago I bought my first trolling motor for this canoe , but after trying several mounts, out of frustration i made my own . 20 years later my mount is showing its age , and i saw this one -- FANTASTIC! I don't have to make a new one! . Simple design, fast to install , lightweight , yet incredibly strong at a great price !"
