Trolling Motor Deck Plate Adapter upgrade for HD or UHD mounts (Re-use your existing holes!)

SKU: DPA-1 Categories: ,



Finally!  A UNIVERSAL deck plate adapter!  NO NEW HOLES IN YOUR DECK!

Tired of drilling holes in your boat?  We don’t blame you!  Add this universal deck plate adapter option to your order and you are all set to add a ShuttleSlide mount in place where you previously hard mounted your motor. This plate replaces the bottom plate on any of our HD or UHD mounts.  Just copy the hole locations from your deck over to the plate and you are good to go!

Made from 0.375″ thick high strength and corrosion resistant 6061-T6 Aluminum, this adapter plate allows you to install any of our mounts in the same location as your previously installed trollling motor using the same holes.  This improves the strength and durability of your deck while also ensuring that the installation of a ShuttleSlide mount will result in the trolling motor being located exactly as it was before but with the new ability to now retract the motor safely inside the boundary of the vessel!

See it in action on the bow of this Rabloa Cayman 246!

  • Designed to be used with the following trolling motors that share the same bolt patterns:
    • Minn Kota: Ulterra, Terrova, Powerdrive, Riptide Ulterra, Riptide Terrova, Riptide Powerdrive, Riptide SP/ST, PD/HC Pontoon and DH40  in any shaft length or voltage configuration
    • Minn Kota (See note below for these motors): Fortrex, Maxxum, Edge and other models that share the same “Scissor” style deployment
    • MotorGuide: Xi5 and Xi3 in any shaft length or voltage configuration
    • Rhodan HD GPS anchors
    • Garmin Force Kraken
    • Power Pole Move PV (ZR requires use of our TMA-1)
    • Lowrance Ghost (requires use of our TMA-1)
    • Haswing
    • Water Snake models
    • Many other brands that share the same bolt patterns as above
    • Fully compatible with all ShuttleSlide HD and UHD mounts such as, SS-7-HD, SS-9-HD and SS-X-HD

Note:  These “Scissor” style deployment motors have a larger base footprint than other models.  The DPA-1 will come with only the holes needed to attach a ShuttleSlide mount .  You will need to use the holes in your deck as a pattern and add those holes to the DPA-1.  This will prevent the need for new holes in your deck for these “Scissor” style trolling motors.  Most of the time our customers are looking for an adapter to convert from the scissor style system to the system use on Ulterra, Terrova, Riptide, etc and this plate covers that need.

    Works well on my Ranger Reata 1850

  2. Foster_r

    Ordered this bigger bottom plate for my Xi5 and 9″HD Shuttleslide so I could use my existing hole pattern. Works as advertised.

  3. crowe_p

    This thing works great on my Robalo Cayman 226, 72″minn kota. Also have the SS-9-HD

  4. DS

    bought this with the 9″ mount, works well

  5. Davis.RangerReata

    It works great! Pretty easy to mount and very simple and straight forward operation. It’s been a lifesaver on keeping the trolling motor safe. (2004 Ranger Reata 19vs -w/ 9″ slide plate)

  6. Z_Cook

    Works great and easy install. Just what I needed. Makes loading and unloading so much easier on my Excel Bay Pro 220

  7. Roy Fore

    I put the Shuttle Slide mount on my boat to use with my Minkota Ulterra. Not only did it allow the trolling motor slide back 9 inches, so the motor would not hit the step, I can now use my cover without removing my motor. Used 9HD

    Just commenting to share my excellent experience with shuttle slide customer service prior to the sale.

    When I purchased mine (SS-9-HD and DPA) I had about 4 million questions that were all answered by customer service via messenger.
    Another benefit for me is the ability to easily remove your trolling motor. It takes me less than a minute to remove my trolling motor and take it inside my garage for safekeeping. For me, this is a requirement since my custom boat cover doesn’t account for the trolling motor.

    Great company and product. Highly recommended!
