Tampa Boat Show
The annual Tampa Boat Show is this weekend at the Tampa Convention Center downtown. As many of you know, Genmar will not be there displaying their Aquasport line as the brand was discontinued a few months ago. That's probably for the best as the direction Genmar was taking Aquasport was getting very far from from the brand's classic looks and functionality.

I really is a shame. I bought a 2004 215 Explorer because I felt it was true to the Aquasport design. I formerly owned a 175 Osprey, which I loved.
Somehow a Wellcraft posing as a fishing boat doesn't excite me, remembering the days of the Sonny Crocker Scarab Guinzo-craft.
Genmar failed to capitalize on what made Aquasport popular, and they never promoted the brand. It was their fault they had an abundance of superfluous brands and redundant models.
My big concern now is the residual value of my boat, though I don't plan to sell it.

Can anyone tell me if a bow mounted trolling motor can be mounted on an aquasport 175 Osprey? If so, what model is suggested; Minn Kota OR Motor Guide? and, what thrust and shaft length is recommended? Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
