Minn Kota's Engine Mount motors are ideal for fishing boats, or for turning recreational boats (like runabouts or pontoons) into fishing boats. The EM motor mounts permanently on the cavitation plate of our outboard or I/O lower unit, keeping the deck and transom of the boat clear. No stowing or deploying required. Once on plane, the EM rides completely out of the water, and will not interfere with the normal performance of your boat or engine.
Minn Kota® Engine Mount Saltwater Trolling Motors
good quality and performance for the money
purchased saltwater EM-160 for main propulsion of pontoon on "no motor lake" design and ease of mounting very user-friendly. others who have seen my set-up seem very interested in it.

The recommended minimum thrust for a 22 to 24’ boat length is 101 to 160 pounds. In addition, if you boat weight with gear/people is over 4000 pounds order the 80 pound thrust if over order the 160 pound thrust Engine Mount Saltwater Trolling Motors. Thanks
No, the EM is designed specifically for installation on the anti-cavitation of an outboard or IO lower unit on a planning typed boat hull (a hull that lifts the EM motors out of the water when the boat is “on plane”). Mounting the EM motor on the rudder of a sailboat is not what the EM motor was designed for and would add considerable drag to the boat when under sail.
Not in the usual sense. These units are designed to be mounted on either an outboard or I/O lower unit anti-cavitation plate. Steering control is via the control used to turn the main motor (th e outboard steering or I/O unit steering). Speed is adjusted via the control that comes with this unit. Tilt of this series minnKota is also via the main motor.
