Intex Composite Boat Motor Mount Kit for Inflatable Boats - 68624E OPEN BOX
Kick back and relax while cruising down the river on an Intex inflatable boat with this motor mount kit. The kit lets you attach up to a 3.5-horsepower motor to the rear of your Intex boat, so you can rest your paddling arms and float in comfort. The mount--which is made of heavy duty composite with aluminum support arms -- attaches and detaches easily, so you don't have to spend a half hour fussing with the components each time you want to use the motor. Plus, the mount disassembles quickly when you return back home for easy storage in your garage or closet.
The motor mount kit is compatible with the following Intex inflatable boats:
- Challenger 2, 3 & 4
- Seahawk 2, 3 & 4
- Excursion 2, 3, 4 & 5
- Mariner 400
- Seahawk II

Did you add it all up? Still cheaper than a sailboat, powerboat, or jet ski.
1) Deep Cycle Marine Battery. Minn Kota Endura recommended Group 27. I got mine via Walmart (May 2013). Minn Kota guided me on this purchase (power NOT brand advise).
2) A deep cycle marine battery requires a "real" battery charger not a trickle charger. Schumacher, manufacturer of battery chargers, walked me through a recommended purchase for the deep cycle marine battery - did not want to damage my new battery. I went with their XCS15 which charges the battery and maintains automatically. I also learned I can use my deep cycle battery, with an inverter, to power my laptop, recharge my mobile devices, etc. during electrical outages or camping.
3) Be selective on your trolling motor. REALLY learn how it works and how it "sucks" power - YOU DON'T WANT TO GET STUCK. Minn Kota now has a new model with power saving features - Endura Max. Make an effort to understand "thrust" so you will not buy MORE motor than you need. Basically the smoother the water ("like oil") the less resistance, the less power you will use. The majority of the time my lake is almost smooth. One time the wind was blowing creating tiny waves, and I did not realize I was using too much trolling power by going at the highest speed of the motor which lead to me rowing BACK for about 2 to 3 hours with a diabetic friend - this was not pleasant. I think he forgave me. :-( But my original (last summer) battery was a small auto battery - I did not know any better. I now have a more powerful (deep cycle) battery which will greatly reduce my risk of getting stuck.
4) Battery Charge Indicator: If I had this originally, I might not have gotten stuck or "trickle" my way back to shore (like I did a few times last summer). I shopped around and Minn Kota has the best price/performance battery charge indicator. I think it was about $14.
Finally I have friends with $100K plus boats with ALL the overhead, and they admit they wish they had the "nerve" to use a boat/raft like this model and save THOUSANDS of dollars every summer on their power boat. Personally I just want to relax and "sit" on the water w/o having to "dish out" thousands of dollars and waste time keeping up an expensive power boat and using 1/2 my "boat fun" docking a powerboat, cleaning it, insurance, paying for winter storage, etc. I use that "extra" money and go to the Caribbean on vacation and use my cousin's power boat he maintains - I just pay for his gasoline.
Enjoy...it's worth every penny & Intex made it affordable.
Sturdy, easy to install, nice looking, what can I expect more ?
Oh yeah, Intex USA could stock the 8mm bolts and nuts. Hard to find those in stainless steel and out of order on Intex site.
Thanks for reading.
One modification I did make to mine was to add a piece of 1/2" marine plywood cut to fit precisely on top of the upper struts (sort of triangle shaped). I cut a hole the size of the battery and made a steel rectangular cradle that hangs 2" below the bottom surface and mounted a rubber strap to hold the battery firmly in place. This keeps the battery out of the boat and out of my way.
The plywood is attached to the struts with four stainless sheetmetal screws and also incorporates a 12 volt lighter (which affords charging for phones, iPods etc.). In addition I added peel & stick LED lighting strips on either side that are controlled by a micro switch mounted discreetly underneath. I never use this boat at night, but if the unexpected happens and I get caught out on the water after dark, I can relax knowing I'm visible to other craft.
