Replacing Your Trolling Motor Pull Cord

On the last trip out my father attempted to lift the trolling motor only to snap the rope and be tossed on the back deck. We will be going over how to replace your rope with a 3/32″ wire cord.


4ft of 3/32″ Stainless Steel Cable vinyl coated – $0.36 per foot


  1.  Remove the remaining rope from mounting point
  2. Thread wire through trolling motor, under pulley bar
  3. Tie wire to mounting point
  4. Tie to handle
  5. Test

Really all there is to it!
