    Minn Kota Ultrex Rubbing

    Recently got the new minn kota ultrex works great but when lifting it up out of water it is rubbing coating off motor where it rest on the mount. Why is there some kind of adjustment to stop it from doing this?

    No adjustment. It has to fit tight on the mount to keep from bouncing and possibly breaking magnets.

    You havn't ran the Ultrex for 20yrs. There is a bow in the shaft that keeps the motor tight on the motorrest. That is the reason that when it's deployed the shaft isn't vertical.
