One of the disadvantages to a flat bottom inflatable boat is that even the slightest amount of wind can really push you around. I’ve taken my inflatable fishing boat out a couple of times without the trolling motor and on a windy day it can really be a chore to get to where you want to go and then stay put once you are there. If you are considering buying an inflatable fishing boat one of the things you should really consider is whether or not the boat you are buying is already equipped for a motor mount. The Sea Eagle I purchased has a very sturdy heavy duty aluminum trolling motor mount. The solid motor mount makes it easy to quickly hook up my little minkota 30 trolling motor. I also have hard wood floors in my boat which is really nice for giving some stability to the marine battery. These are all just little things to consider. The last thing you want to do is have to try and fabricate a trolling motor mount to a boat that was not designed to cary the weight. Spend a little more up front to get the gear you really want. One advantage to the flat bottom inflatable boat is that it does not take much power to push it around. So with a little minkota 30 I can push my sea eagle at around 3-4 miles per hour which is plenty fast enough to get to the fish.
