Minn Kota® Riptide® Transom-Mount Saltwater Trolling Motors
Minn Kota® Riptide® Transom-Mount Trolling Motors offer advanced corrosion protection. Premium-grade alloys are impervious to rust. Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with special zinc dichromate armor plating. All components are then finished with a 5-mil TGIC polyester powder coat paint. All models except SC models feature Digital Maximizer Technology which allows up to five times longer run time on a single charge. All Riptide trolling motors feature a sacrificial zinc anode to fight galvanic corrosion. The replaceable anode is conveniently mounted on the prop hub for better protection and longer motor life. All Riptide motors feature a two-year manufacturer's warranty.

Rated 1 out of 5 by dannyr12 riiptide 101 every time I used this motor something broke.first the plastic handle broke when I was attaching it to the boat and finaly the whole motor broke loose from the mount almost pulling a friend overboard the mount has a lot of plastic and is to weak for the weight and strength of the motor , the motor seems well built and solid but the mount is very poor. I would not buy the 101 the other might not b as heavy im going to try the motorguid 105. April 2, 2013

Details:Hi, if i need to lunch my 11 feet long inflatable boat with this trolling motor attach like it is suppose to "transom" , does the motor or shaft tilt ? so the propeller wont be touching the bottom of the ramp ?
Details:Is it difficult to separate the controller from the motor? I'd like to mount the motor on the rudder bracket (using the existing foot pedals to control the direction) and adjust the motor speed from the center of the kayak.
Details:Do you have a cheaper electric motor that will still be good for my boat? Thanks.
A:The vair-max great white worked well for me. 18" shaft 45 lbs thrust. Almost $300 though
