Rated 5 out of 5 by First Bow Mount Trolling Motor Just got the 55lb Riptide with hand control and variable speed installed on my KeyWest 1720. Fished a local lake for the first time. Light Wind day and Sunny. Used the motor continuously for 4 hours on anywhere from 15-25 percent. After fishing, the marine battery was still able to crank my 90HP Yamaha and head home. I messed around with the 100% speed and it moved nicely. If I was in a heavy current or heavy winds, it may need the 70 or 80 lb thrust. I don't fish many areas with current and I pick nice days to fish. With that in mind, the 55lb works great for my needs. Deploys easy and with the quick release bracket, taking it off when I am going offshore is a snap! My mechanic has the same boat and trolling motor and he is going on 3 years of nothing but saltwater fishing and no issues. I hope I have his kind of luck ;) March 11, 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by TRASH! What a joke! First time I went out with the Riptide 55 I had problems with it. First, on speed 5 the locking mechanism doesn't hold and the trolling motor comes up. Second, had problems with the speeds. There is no separation between the speeds. Item returned promptly! This unit is a joke! The 12/55 did move the boat well other than these two problems. Don't waste your time or money. May 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Another Good Minn Kota! This is my 3rd minn kota riptide(I have had several different boats and always add a riptide to them) and am very pleased with them. It was easy to install and I've only used this one 3 times so far, but have been impressed to this point. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because when I pull the string to deploy the motor, it takes a lot of force. September 4, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Quality product This is my third Minnkota on three different boats, would not dare to think of buying another brand.This is my 1st 24 volt but its strong and so far high quality. April 9, 2012

A: 
No, this model needs a different mount to remove for storage. I think Minn Kota may have a "latch and door" model which allows the motor and shaft to be taken off without an additional mount.

A: 
Any battery charger will charge the battery you have, if you have 24 volts you will need a 2 bank charger. If you have another 12 volt battery you need to charge as well you will need a 3 bank.
