Another great product from Minn Kota whenever I rent a boat, I have always wished I had the control that a trolling motor can provide. The 45lbs model worked really well on the very heavy (and large) jon boat we rented down on Lake Cumberland in Kentucky. I'm looking forward to using it on a smaller v-hull on our next trip, as Im sure the v-hull will fly through the water on the top speed. The extendable tiller really comes in handy, as does the steering tension collar. The one handed stow is really nice as well. June 3, 2011
Great Love the motor,, works great,, lost of power!!!!!! Just takes 2 weeks for shipping,,, NOT RIGHT!!! May 24, 2011
Great service I have used Minn Kota for years so I expect great things. All I can say so far is the service was great. May 14, 2011
Well worth the $$$$ I'm a diehard motorguide fan but, I was particularly wanting to try the tilt , the composite shaft,and the different looking "easy stow" features that this model had over the $70 cheaper MG model. This motor is GREAT! It pulled my 16 footer @3.75 mph per my gps. I had to reinforce my mount on the front of my boat. The features are a joy and make it so much easier for novices to sit in the front and troll. Works great in the back as well. April 27, 2011

my brother and I are planning on getting one of these for our hobie kayak. We need something to push us around faster while we spearfish. Would 50# thrust push around 300lbs fast? Fast would be 8mph +? and also how long does the battery last if you're cranking it?

I use a Optimpa blue top battery. They are expensive, but I can run the trolling motor all day, and still have enough juice to start the big motor.

Staff Answer
A: 
The recommended minimum thrust for a 14’ boat is 35 pounds. You will want to measure your boat when it is fully loaded with gear and people for a regular day of fishing. Measure from intended mounting location (transom or bow) to the waterline of the loaded boat. Then add 18 inches. That's the shaft length you are looking for.

Bow Mount:
• Pulls boat through the water
• Offers most maneuverability and control
• More popular for medium to large fishing boats
• Requires flat deck/area to mount
• Hands-free option

Transom Mount:
• Pushes boat through the water
• Less expensive than bow mount TM
• Popular for smaller boats, including canoes, personal pontoons, duck boats, etc.
• Easy to mount—clamps to stern

Staff Answer
A: 
With a 12-14 foot boat length, you will want to have at least 35 pounds of thrust and see chart below for shaft length.

Shaft: Measure from the mounting surface to the waterline. For rough water conditions, add 5” to the waterline measurement. For hand-control trolling motors, add 12” to Recommended Shaft Length.

HP vs thrust?

Details: 
I have an 18 1/2' Fisher with a 120 HP motor...would the 80 lb thrust be sufficient to troll? What HP equivalent would that be?
1 year, 2 months ago
Answer this Question

Answers

A: 
You are trying to relate two separate and unrelated concepts. First, your 120 HP motor is designed to be a primary power source. The trolling motor is only designed for slow maneuvering although it can function as primary power for small boats in light current while traveling over relatively short distances.

The conversion between mechanical horsepower and electrical power is: 1 HP = 735 Watts.

The main motor is rated in horsepower because it is designed to be run continuously if necessary. However, the trolling motor is rated in pounds of thrust because it is designed to be operated intermittently.

I think an 80 pound thrust trolling motor would do the job for you but a 55 pound thrust motor would also work. The primary difference would be the maximum speed which you could achieve.

Look at it this way. How many pounds of force do you need to use to push your boat when it is sitting in the dock? A 20 pound push will move the boat but not very far or very fast. A 50 pound push will really get it going but to keep it going, you need to keep pushing. This is the thrust effect of the electric motor. The 80 pound motor should give you excellent results.

I have a 16' Lund with a 50 HP outboard and a 55 pound MinnKota Terrova. With this setup, the trolling motor has power to spare, even in strong current.

A: 
One horsepower is approximately equal to 15 pounds of thrust, so if you take the amount of thrust divided by 15, you should be able to determine the approximate horsepower.

18 foot Jon boat

Details: 
I am getting an 18 foot Jon boat and the trolling motor will be the only power source. Boat weight is 475 lbs, max weight capacity is 1,375 lbs, beam is 75 inches. Would a 55 lb 12 volt Traxxix transom mount be enough? Also what size battery would be needed?

A: 
I use the 55lb 12 volt Traxxix on a Tracker ProGuide V16 (approximatley 2200 lbs with the 60 horse Merc) It pushes this boat just fine for trolling and slow movements. If it's your only motor, and you need to cover a lot of real estate, you might want to step up to a higher thrust, but you would also need a 24volt system.

sure. a 29m battery would last longer than a 27m or 24m. bigger the number the more plates it has which makes it bigger and last longer.

My partner and I fish local rivers that have depths of 12 feet. On the other hand we have some places we have to get out of the boat and drag our aluminum boat through ankle deep water. The prop height, from tip to tip, might not be as beneficial for our use if it's to big.

A: 
I use the 55lb Traxxis varible on my 13ft Sports Pal canoe when I fish the Allegheny River in PA. This is a river I fish very often. I am not sure how to exactly answer your question but, the one handed stow feature is why I bought this motor. The Allegheny is also a very shallow river and it sound like I fish it the same way as you guys. I have also had two very bad major back surgeries. When I start to enter shallow water, I simply reach back with one hand and put the motor into stow postion so I can paddle or so atleast put the motor in a high postion so it doesn.t drag. The composite shaft can really take the punishment of those unseen boulders. I really love this motor. Matter of a fact, I bought two of them. It is much easier on my back than my old Endura. Hope this helps

A: 
From center shaft to blade tip is 5 3/4 inches. That's about 3" below the body of the motor housing. There is a metal guide fin made into the body which extends down almost the same as the blade too that will help push objects out from the blades path. I have run my motor in 1 ft. of water and it did good as long as the speed is very slow. Hope this helps.
