I am getting ready to purchase a 16' Lowe Roughneck jon boat with a 20" transom height.? I am planning on putting a bow mounted trolling motor on the front.? Right now I am trying to decide between the minn kota edge 40 and a motor guide trolling motor both are about the same price.? Right now I am leaning towards the minn kota because I have read some bad things about the gator flex mount on the motor guide.? I would appreciate it if you guys could give some advice or any first hand experience you may have with any of these motors before I make this investment.? Oh yea how long of a shaft should I get? or does it matter that much.? Thanks!

Go with Minn Kota. Make sure the shaft length is longer than you think you need.
