Proper Trolling Motor installation by Marine Makeover Solutions


A professional install of your trolling motor may significantly improve its quality of service to you

It is not uncommon at all for trolling motors, especially transom-mount, to be installed DIY by boat owners with a successful outcome.  We'll not try to dissuade anyone who feels they can handle the task, especially with more portable-type units and small boats.  

As boats get a bit larger and bow or engine mounting comes into the picture, professional installation becomes the wise choice in most applications because of one key word:

Planning - it's critical to a successful trolling motor install and safe, reliable operation

Install of a trolling motor requires a solid conversation regarding how your boat is used, perhaps how you fish off your boat, how much thrust is necessary and perhaps how much battery power you have (or can install) in certain cases.  Trolling motors have numerous mount points and measurement considerations which must be properly addressed prior to drilling, securing and powering your install.  There are definitely safety considerations which in certain installs involve the hull, deck, even railings and other matters fact-dependent to your boat.  

Naturally, we'd welcome you to enjoy your boat and rely on our expertise to assure a perfect trolling motor install and experience long term.

When you're ready to discuss proper install of your trolling motor, please call on us anytime!

We’re excited when a great testimonial arrives, because it means so much to us. 

Genuinely Personal Service

Every boat is a unique case, even similar models owned by different families.  The expectations are different, boat use is different and many variables exist.  We'll review your boat and how you use it.  Of course we'll get the basics right to assure you have all the information to keep your boat safe, afloat and functional when you're ready to use it. 

Marine knowledge

Sincerely, this is a significant reason many choose Marine Makeover Solutions.  Applying carpet and refinishing gel are simply different for the marine environment, requiring specialized knowledge of how materials will perform in the most difficult environments.  This extends to the installation of electronics which must not only serve in challenging environments, but must also be properly wired and secured for your safety and the best life cycle the device can expect.  We bring craftsmanship and know-how to some of the most difficult environments materials and machinery can experience.  


The best results for you begin with an accurate assessment of your boat's condition and its needs - relative to how you use your boat and what you truly need for its best service to your family.  We believe our capability gives you better, more thorough information at the outset which enables you to make better decisions on which projects come first.  And as we know, with boats there is an expectation needs and projects will occur.  

By doing the up front work thoroughly and giving each job excellent, expert attention until it's complete, we have seen families save money over and over again.  

Happiness is when your boat stands truly ready for you and your family

Our boat is more than a possession, it's a wonderful escape.  The privilege of boat ownership is truly enjoyed when the boat is ready when we are.  When we have a surprise weekend away and have time to soak up spontaneous time on the water, we want our boat to be in excellent mechanical condition.  We depend on it for our safety and our family's safety.  And we want the boat to be as presentable as possible with all features at our disposal and fully functional.   

For all these reasons, we submit our desire to serve you, your family and your wonderful watercraft.  

We are excited every time a new boating family joins our family. 

It's our pleasure to hear your stories, partner in your challenges and work together to find solutions which increase your boat's service life and value. 

When we say we treat your boat as if it's our own, we know your major investment, your family's enjoyment and your safety are all part of the equation.
