It appears that perhaps everyone doesn't know the little secret
about the hidden "stuff" at the front of your MotorGuide
Gatormount trolling motor mount.
If you're not aware of it, have a look at the front of the Gatormount
and on the flat surface about an inch or so from the front edge you'll
see a prop wrench that fits down into the mount itself.
It's sort of spring-loaded; push towards the back of the mount and
lift the front edge. You'll find that you have a trolling motor prop
wrench and if you lift off the plastic end you'll find that you have 2
spare prop shear pins. Underneath where the prop wrench fits,
you'll find a recessed circle in which is a spare prop "nut".
(It sits in the hole upside down.)
I found this by accident a couple of years ago and it occurred to
me that perhaps I'm not the only one that didn't know about it.
Take care, Al Shields
