Bow Mount Trolling Motor with Remote

Marshall Hosea at The Kayak Angler's Outfitter is on to something with this awesome trolling motor setup.  Incorporating a MinnKota PowerDrive V2 trolling motor with the Co-Pilot remote, this system is simple as can be, letting you focus on the fish.  You have full control of the motor whether standing or sitting, and it is easy to retract when you get to shore or in shallow water.

The mount board is fastened in two locations to the gunwales and to the deck just bow-side of the Dock Mounts.  Fender washers are installed on the inside of the hull to distribute the force and make the mount secure.  The PowerDrive Motor has a docking plate that attaches to the mount board, enabling the motor to be easily removed or installed.

Is there any additional information on this setup? It would be cool to have more detail on how this is mounted on the kayak.
