Guys, I've had my Pro Team 175 for 6-7 months. From the first day I started using my trolling motor I've felt that the mounting bracket for my trolling motor was on the whimpy side. I had previously used a Minn Kota for almost 15 years and feel that bracket was alot beefier. I think I want to purchase the Gator Mount. Please give me the pros and cons. Can I use the same mounting holes as the Motor Guide/Tracker mounting bracket. Are they far more superior than the standard bracket? If I want to up-grade to another Motor Guide t/m in the future are they compatable for them? Are all the Gator Mounts the same? Your response and help in this matter is appreciated. I think the dealer may just tell me what I want to hear. You guys give the real truth to issues.
