Got a BR 170 this year, and a new trolling motor. Had trouble finding any DIY instruction online for installing it, so designed my own mount! No holes in the boat either!!

I wouldn't say that was aesthetically pleasing but looks like it would work.
I'm thinking I might try to fabricate a similar one for my Element XL.
Like the idea of no holes and easily removed when not need.

I admire your ingenuity, but please put a safety cord on that. If those clamps give up as they often do, you can't rely on the wires to hold the motor .
