I've looked everywhere and nobody makes a trolling motor mount for a solo canoe where the seat is near the center of the boat. All mounts are for tandem or larger canoes and are meant to go at the stern. It looks to me like I could screw the trolling motor cups to the inside of the transom rail with the addition of a one inch square block of wood for additional surface area tucked under the rail. The TM would go a couple feet in front of where I sit and I'd be able to reach the handle easily, with the battery up at the bow. I understand the TM won't turn the boat as easily as if it were mounted at the rear. But I'm wondering if there are some other considerations I haven't thought of. I've got a Mohawk 14 Solo canoe. The TM is a 34 lb thrust Minn Kota Endura.
