Default Outfitting Renegade 1875 - Talon, max weight

Hey guys - new to the forums and saw a couple posts on this but wanted to see if anyone has specific advice.

Just bought a Renegade 1875 with the 115. I want to add two anchors (Talons). The dealer wasn't too keen on the Talons - says it might be too much weight. Sounds reasonable but is there a guideline for max weight on the transom? I've seen some pretty bad pictures with people who over did the back end and the boat sits wrong.

As a follow on... is one anchor really an option? It seems like you'd just pivot and that defeats at least most of the idea for the anchors.

Lastly - what about the anchor length? Most of my stuff will be shallow inland lakes in Wisconsin. 8' seems like not enough. I wouldn't be asking if weight weren't an issue, but anyone have opinions?

Thanks in advance.

I have one 12 foot, and you can use the pivoting to you advantage if you drop your trolling motor down to point the bow in any direction you want. Two would be nice when at the dock other then that its just the extra step to lower your TM.

I have 2 15' talons on the back of my 1875 Pro-v. Love the depth. Have used them way more than I thought I would

The ProV dry weight is about 50% more than the Renegade. Not sure what they weigh, but I notice a difference in mu ProV when I added a 9.9 Pro Kicker which goes just over 100 pounds.

Your dealer might be right.

From the Lund website: Here's a video on installing a Talon on a Renegade.

I have twin 12 talons mounted on a Lund predator 2010 and have zero problems, not sure if that helps out or not

Do you know why they used the sandwich bracket? With all that transom available I would have thought it would be better to install it direct onto the transom?

Using the bracket has as couple of advantages.

#1 - No additional holes in transom. Less holes, less leaks.
#2 - The center of the transom is the strongest part with stringers and extra bracing for motor support.
#3 - Allows for easier removal as its not permanent, leaving holes to be filled.

I'd be concerned with weight on an 18ft boat. 2 Talons, plus a motor is quite a lot. I know most comments say its fine, but those that commented all have 20Ft boats. There is a big difference in an 18ft vs. a 20ft.

To top it off, the 1875 renegade is only rated for a 115 and is not a deep V boat. Its freeboard is limited. I'd be very leery of dumping that much weight on the back...

BTW...That video is showing a Talon being mounted on a 20ft Pro-V....Not a renegade...

my 2 cents.....

OOPs... Jeeze... you are correct. I had Googled "Talon mounted on Renegade".. This video came up came up...and I never looked at the boat. It is plainly a Pro V.

-- But, there are lots of Renegades out there with Talons.
BTW... The transom is all aluminum on the Renegades.
