I bought this motor in May 2009 and it is now in the shop for the 4th time. I've owned boats for the last 25 years and have always had a trolling motor this is by far the must unreliable trolling motor I've ever owned. It makes a better anchor than a trolling motor. I would not recommend it even at 1/2 the price. The only upside is that the 1st three times repairs were covered under warranty and the service team at Bass Pro in Destin Florida have been great to deal with.

Don't waste your money
You do not want to know the problems I have had with this motor. Firstly, upon unpacking the motor, I discovered the head and the foot did not line up. It has only got worse, however. This motor has been to the authorized service center more times than it has been on the water. I am just about to have to spend another $1100 on a Minn Kota because my motor has died for the third time. Before it went out, the head had worked itself loose from the shaft and when I went in to tighten it, I discovered the plastic sleeve that secures it to the shaft was burst. Piece of junk. Don't waste your money. This is just scratching the surface. I could go on.

I have replaced the plastic head on this trolling motor twice already.. It does not hold up in rough water conditions.... As far as, the trolling motor itself, it has great power to move a boat quietly and in strong winds and current... Mfg. needs to beef up the plastic head for this unit...

Motorguide first in the game
Motorguide was first in the game of making trolling motors (at least before MinnKota). Dependable, structurally strong.

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.
Well of cource look at the hight of youre boat. if your boat sits high on the water you obviously want a long shaft. I would go with a longer shaft becuase you could normally adjust the depth, if the shaft is long then you can adjust the control top and you wont have to bend down so far to control the speed of the trolling motor.
