Anybody have pics of their TM battery set up in front?

Just bought a 17T with a Minn Kota / Ipilot.

I plan to be solo or with my dog.

I'd like to keep my seat in the far rear. I figure the motor, battery and cooler way up front will balance me out and a cooler up their with cushion will be easier to climb over to stow and deploy the motor.

Thanks!

I'll answer my own question in case somebody else wants to know.

First time on the water today. I had the motor on and the battery up front. It pedaled fine but if I left the back to go to the front to deploy the motor the front would sink. At that point all the weight was in the front.

Battery needs to be in the back.

Did you move seat to center after moving battery to the back or did you try staying in the back?
