Will it work?

5 posts in this topic

Im wondering if anyone can tell me if a 42" shaft bow mount trolling motor will work on a older style 16' Lund Pike D.

Thanks

What # thrust is the motor? I would not go with less then a 65# thrust.

The 42" shaft will probably work in calm water but in waves it will be out of the water more then it is in the water.

For your size boat, 55 would be plenty. I have one on my 17' and it goes almost 2mph on flat water and you don't need two batteries. If the 42" shaft'll work, it all depends on how high you bow rides above the water. To high, and the smallest waves will pull the prop out of the water. If you think it'll work, try it.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
