If so where did you put it and how did you attach it.

Do a Google search for bass yaks. That should give you some ideas.

Default A Word of Caution Here.....

If you put a trolling motor on your kayak it no longer is man powered and changes the type of registration on your boat, unless you already purchased the powerboat registration.

When I registered I asked them if I needed anything extra if I put trolling motor on it and they said no and looking at registration there is nothing checked for how it is powered. And I still havent been able to find a fs10 with a trolling motor online I'll just try to be imaginative i guess when installing it. I bought mincoda motor for $100 on sale and a fish finder. I plan on launching on the Ohio river on the ramp next to us bank arena Friday morning to try it out.

Bostonwhaler10,
Welcome to OGF forums!

Do a little surfing on YouTube and you'll find all kinds of ideas for mounting a trolling motor...on just about anything. Here's one idea:

Its on the very first page of the Ohio Watercraft page that talks about the alt reg.



Alternative Registration for Hand-Powered Boats
Alternative Registration for Hand-powered Vessels - This registration provides a one-decal numbering option for manually propelled canoes, kayaks, rowboats, inflatables, rowing sculls, racing shells, paddleboards, float tubes (with more than one cell) and pedal boats that will never be propelled with a motor or sail

Wasnt that difficult at all to come up with a mount. Just make sure that you have it positioned to were you can easily reach it and can flip it up in shallow water.

You don't have to get one of those for yaks and canoes. He may have purchased a standard registration.

I bought the regular registration from the DMV , you just check on the form you fill out how it's powered, it doesn't matter for a kayak I believe. I'm not sure why someone would want the alternate registration, it costs more and you have to go to east fork to get it.

Hmmmm....If you get the alternative, $25, you don't have to buy and stick on all of those numbers. If you paid less than that, $20, I don't think you can use a motor on it.

Motorized canoe registration is $33.

"NOTE: If you attach a motor (permanently or not) to a vessel registered as "hand-powered," you must change the Type of Propulsion on your registration. See Add-a-Motor Proration Fees below. The proration is only valid for traditional registrations that are adding a motor, and the change must be made at a watercraft registration agent's office."

I checked the trolling motor and hand powered box and asked if I needed anything else.

I got my last two in Lebanon. Both at Lebanon and East Fork they asked me if there was ever a chance I would put a motor or sail on the kayak.

Here is what i came up with taking inspiration from Rusty Goat. Bass pro sells a mount for a crazy 75$ that seems way less durable than what i made for 4$.
