I used to own a trolling motor shop. Motor guide is a trotline weight as far as I'm concerned.
Get a minn kota and get the quick mount plate for easy removal.
My boat will come with a removable bracket so I won't need the quick mount plate. When duck hunting I will remove the trolling motor and bracket. Then after season I can install the bracket back for fishing. You guys may think I'm nuts but I'm leaning toward a hand control trolling motor with a couple big foot push buttons and a Pro Kontrol extension handle.
