Designed specifically for Minn Kota Riptide Ulterra, Terrova and PowerDrive saltwater trolling motors, this quick release plate is made from high-yield composite, is ultra-strong and corrosion-resistant, and has no sharp edges. It is far and away our best-selling bracket for these motors. The quick release's low-profile design leaves the deck clear when the motor is removed, and a locking "U" handle with stainless steel pins can be secured with a padlock (not included) to prevent theft.
Riptide Ulterra, Terrova and PowerDrive Quick Release RTA-17 Full Details
Minn Kota RTA-17 | 1854017
Compatible with all Minn Kota Riptide Ulterra, Terrova and PowerDrive trolling motors except those with 72" shaft.
This quick release allows for easy, tool-free removal of the trolling motor from the deck. To attach the two parts of the quick release plate, simply set the large outer plate on top of the smaller inner plate and press the stainless steel "U" shaped handle through the side of the mounting plates and the outer metal pin. Once in place, you can run a padlock through the hole in the outer metal pin to help prevent theft. This padlock is recommended.
The top portion of the bracket bolts directly to the trolling motor. The bottom plate bolts directly to the deck of the boat. Drilling is required, and it's ideal if you have access to the underside of the bow mounting surface. If not, it's possible to use no access bolting nuts to secure the quick release bracket.

Outer Plate: 6.25" W x 12.5" L x 1" H; Inner Plate (installed on the boat) 4.25" W x 6.5" L x 1" H Download Mounting Dimensions
Riptide Ulterra, Terrova and PowerDrive Quick Release RTA-17 Reviews
bay boat 25 ft
love my trolling motor, 112 lb 36 volt riptide terrova, .makes fishing so much easier and hassle free
Scout Center Console , 16 ft
Makes taking the trolling motor on and off a snap.....diffidently recommend it highly.
North River Sea Hawk 20 ft plus off shore bracket
First outing, everything worked flawlessy, deployed several times, trolled probably 5 miles through out the day in different spots. I was steering using the remote, I had not read up on the Auto Pilot yet as it was my first day out. I fished more Sunday then I have ever fished as a trolling captian, Auto Pilot will increase that as it will correct for current and wind automatically with out me steering. The Motor as meant my expectations.
Bay Scout 240 24 ft
Bought a Riptide Ulterra 80 and this quick release bracket came with it for free, I kind of gooned up the cart on my order and it did not add the bracket. I called trollingmotors.net and explained. No problem, George took care of the order and it all arrived two days later via UPS. Great product and great service. I will definitely use trollingmotors,net again.
skiff 19 ft
Product appears to be engineered and made well. I wish you could buy each part of the unit separately but it’s not to be. Trolling Motors.Net an excellent outfit and responsive to all questions in a timely manner.
Crestliner 1448 / Polar 1796 skiff
I bought this to use the minn kota terrova ipilot on my converted jon boat to bass boat and also my Polar 1796 skiff. With the purchase of an additional puck base, you can literally swap the motor from 1 boat to the other in less than 1 minute! Definitely recommend this product.
Lund Alaskan 17
The fit is too tight to remove it without using a tool. It is a good theory, but does not work without using a tool to drive the pins in, or out. Just pulling on the handle is not enough. Disappointing. Would not have purchased it if I knew this.
Hurricane 22' fundeck
Easy to install and use.
Skeeter 22 bayboat
Product delivered fast fit perfect!
Technical Skiff 16'
Good price, customer service and timely shipping. Couldn't ask for more! Need more time with the RTA-17 in order to properly make a review but so far great.
