101lb Riptide Cape Island

PostWed Apr 12, 2017 2:31 pm

Putting a Riptide on my Cape Island very soon.
Current and tide rip pretty good here in the Cape Lookout area so I opted for a 101lb thrust. Trying to figure out batteries and placement. Anyone else using a similar setup? How'd you go about doing it? Any pics?
Thanks :D

i have the 24v, 80 lb MK mounted to an alum plate that is through bolted to the deck.

i ran the power into the anchor locker so i don't have wires on the deck.

Thanks.
Where did you put the batteries?
The alum plate is a great idea, I ripped an 80lb riptide out of my 197 before.
Had a plate put in at factory when Henry was good enough to arrange getting my damage fixed.
Where did you get the plate?
Thanks

i had a friend cut the plate, and i have the quick release puck mounted to it.

my batteries are in the console, and i had to add a hatch in front so i could work in there.
