  • Saltwater-engineered, premium-grade marine alloys--virtually impervious to rust
  • Indestructible composite shaft--pound for pound, stronger than stainless steel
  • Fully encapsulated electronics--control boards are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane
  • Sacrificial anode--patented, replaceable anode protects metallic components from galvanic corrosion  
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 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. April 5, 2010

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.

I think best bet is to contact the maker, I noticed you can great request shaft lengths long then what the make so I assume you can have them make them short if needed
