Action Craft 1890- Trolling motor length and additional questions

I just purchased a used 1890 and I have the following questions:
1. What trolling motor shaft length do I need?
2. Where do I put the two batteries?
3. Installing bubblers in the two back live wells required?
4. What length push pole and can you push a 1890?
5. What about a wash down pump?
6. How well does the battery chargers hold up and where do you mount it?

Installing Atlas Jack Plate 6" setback.
Power pole (1 each).

Equiped with Yamaha 150hp

    I have an 1890. My trolling motor is the std. 24v 101 MinnKota. They put the quick release puck on the port side deck shimmer up over the toe rail height. My batteries are mounted on a piece of starboard between the anchor locker and the cooler hatch. I also have the charger mounted on it as well. My push pole is a Biscayne hybrid about 23 ft. You can pole it as long as you work it with any wind. Honestly, I use the MK more.

    52" is fine - I put the 36v 105 and man, it turns the 1890 into a killing machine. You can actually work high tide push under bridges and stay in one spot. You canmove right along with redfish schools!!
