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 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
- Water Snake models
- Many other brands that share the same bolt patterns as above
- Fully compatible with all ShuttleSlide mounts such as, SS-12-15, 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.
- Length: 15.5 to 17 Inches (varies with your specific motor)
