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 (5/3 speed) 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 manufacturer's 2-year limted warranty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Edisto Runs great against current
We finally got to try out our new Minn Kota this weekend in Fishing Creek on Edisto Island. We were driving against the tide in our john boat at the start and finish of our fishing trip and we were moving nicely. We were able to go into some areas we had not been able to go with our gas power motor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by dmv22lpd Powerful and maintenance free
I love this troller. I jump between fresh, brackish, and saltwater and the Riptide 50 is the cat's meow. No fear of oxidation or rust is a tremendous peace of mind and saves time scrubbing it down after every usage. The power saving feature is incredible and has allowed me to travel around for 6-7 hours without fear of losing battery power. I just wish I could hop it up a little to gain a few knots.
