Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 90 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Huge improvement Choose to replace the 1979 mercury (motorguide) thruster on my boat, went with the motorguide based on the old motor lasting over 30 years. The 46 LB thrust was a huge improvement over the original 30 LB. steering is smoother with the linkage system over the old push/pull cable. Love the lighted direction indicator, over the standard motorguide bow mount. Would like to see longer hex head install bolts for fiberglass installs, Phillips heads are bad idea. August 17, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by good choice I have had both mounts and the break a way mount is very heavy. If I had it to do over I would buy the regular mount. I am afraid if I hit something the mount won't break, but it will pull out of my deck and do damage to the fiberglass boat. Low speed is not quite low enough. Aside from above I do like the trolling motor and would buy it again. June 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super pleased! Replaced the 30 pound thrust that came standard in 1996 on my Pro 17 Bass Tracker. Did have to drill new holes but super easy installation. Unbelievable difference in the upgrade to the 46 pounds of thrust. Ordered the motor on Sunday night, was putting it on Wednesday evening. Happy, happy, happy!!! May 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Dependable After 12 years of demanding service, it was time to replace my old 43 lbs MotorGuide. There was no doubt what to go with and that was another MotorGuide. I fish everything from rivers and bayous to the inland marshes of south Louisiana. This trolling motor can handle it all. I can fish for 6 hours out of my 16 foot boat with the control set on 3 and still have 75% power left in my battery. May 23, 2013

If there is not a flat (or two-level) deck that's about 28" long, you will have to make a bracket to hold the mount level and secure.

A: 
I have used a 12V 55lb thrust troller on my 16 foot pontoon.

However, if you have wind or current to contend with, you are going to want to go with a 24V unit of at least 80 lbs thrust.

The 80 lb thrust won't give you twice the speed, but it will give you enough thrust, even with passengers, to handle windy conditions.

If you are pushing more than 21 feet of boat, you may need even larger. A pontoon catches a LOT of wind.

A: 
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.

A: 
Measure from the water to top of your deck, add at least 12" or more. Remember, the motor mount can raise the power head up 4" or more.

Bow mount trolling motors tend to need a longer shaft than the standard 30" to 36". For a bow mount, I'd go at least 42" shaft.

Transom mount, at the back, are more forgiving on shaft length. A 36" shaft would fit most small to medium fishing boats.

Remember, the prop needs to be about 10" to 12" below the surface. If you have some guys in the back of the boat, it can raise the bow six inches or more.
