I've got Scotty anchor mounts on my pontoon boat and on my canoe ( two on each ) and I have two anchor locks that I move from boat to boat, depending on which I choose to use.
The mounts come for use on rails or for mounting to a surface.

That Susannah is quite the catch if she would do that for you. Bonus points for her if she cleans and cooks it as well.

I think it would be easy to adapt a motor mount to that canoe. One like this one could be easily adapted by cementing on the mounting straps. I bet Sea Eagle will actually come up with one in time, this is just a new canoe for them is all, and they likely just have not got around to it yet.

Even if there is just one thing around, I can seem to tangle with it fly fishing. This is why I now prefer spin casting.

I don't get why there would be so many road holders. Did they just do that to show what could be done?

We have a pair of Placid Boats, 12', and paddled in the Tetons NP and Yellowstone NP. Depending on the state, you may or may not have to buy a permit to put your boats in the water. Most states require inspections for water born creatures. Our boats weigh 22 lbs. each, and the new Ultras weigh 19 lbs.!

Around here it's just if you are going to use a motor.
