would that be enough thrust for an 18ft boat?

If its not windy or choppy for the 18' boat.

good motors though! Your not going to get any more thrust without going 24V.

how windy or choppy would make it ineffective? 1-2ft'ers,

2-3fr ers?

Actually Minnkota sells a 55lb thrust transom mount 12 volts. (Maxxum 55T) Going for $359 at Cabelas. (Ouch) For an 18ft boat though, the motor could be used in winds to help slow the boat or control a drift, but as far as backtrolling, I don't think you'd have much success in heavier winds. Thanks for your interest, Junky....

I had a 55 LB Minnkota transom mount on a 16 ft Lund Explorer. It worked OK most of the time. Many new boats in the 17 to 18 foot range still have that size motor. I went to a front mount 50 LB. Works about the same. The 24 volt option adds expense to batteries and more weight.

Thanks for your response Jon. When the conditions are too rough for an electric, hopefully you have the right gas motor to replace.

If I had the cash I would buy the motor in a heartbeat! Its a steal at the price listed!

This motor will work great on everything up to 16', and will push a larger boat, but a person couldnt expect much for performance on a big boat on a windy day. It has plenty of power to push the boats foreward, but it would struggle trying to backtroll in any chop on a larger boat.

These motors also promote excellant battery life(maximizer), and they have the infinate speed control so you dont have to kick between sppeds to get the speed you want. If your using them to hold position, or control a drift.. putt around and cast they will run forever on a decent battery. Its the perfect motor for those fishing the electric motor only lakes with small to mid size boats to boot!

Somebody better jump on this!

Considering trades?

Thanks for the sales pitch TG. wink.gif I know it's a tough decision to buy any electric product used, but, if you see the motor you know it hasn't been used much. I have pics to prove and anyone is welcome to come take a look. Nothing to hide here. I'm in the market for a 2006 Honda 25/30hp prop w/12 pitch. Stainless or aluminum. Could make a deal if someone has one laying around. Thanks again. Junkky....

Send me what pics you have too burchoid at gmail (Contact Us Please)

I just picked up a 17' boat but it came with a 30lb thrust trolling motor (pretty much worthless with anything more than 2 MPH wind)

Thanks!

Did some housekeeping tonight and found 2 Roberts rod holders that I will throw into the deal if you would like. I don't have the holder mounts, but you can buy them seperate. These holders are like new. My loss, your gain. Thank you, Junky...

      So have had this small lake on my radar seance last spring, was out there and got some really nice crappies a buddy and his dad got some nice northerns, so like I said small lake max death of 5-6 ft and that is pretty much in one spot but does kind of get close to shore where there is trees in the lake. So my thought is to sit on the edge and fish for crappies and toss out a tip up closer to shore??
    • side_laker
      Thinking about bring my wheelhouse up there tomorrow far a day of fishing and spend the night any new reports 
    • tview
      Was on green Thurs night was able to find a few fish in 24ft between 4:30 and 7:00  bite was OK we ending up keeping about 10 nice eaters. heading back out today

      Was on Green Thursday , fished from 3:30 to 8:30. Caught 3 nice crappies and some small perch. Funny thing the crappies were caught between 4 and 5. Not a bite after dark,  they  ( or something) was there but would not bite on anything I put in front of them. Caught the 3 in deep water with a frostee and minnow. Good Luck Moose.  I may try Little Elk this afternoon

      The wing bolt on my auger sheared off yesterday. So I spent some time getting the bolt out. Then I was off looking for the strongest bolts I could find. The auger is good to go again. Seeing I have about 5000 holes drilled with it upgrading the bolts is worth it. There is a lot of ice this year and I am not having any issue powering through it with dcd985 and the clam plate. I am getting some of the ice chips out of the hole before busting through, but I did that with the lazer mag too.  I think I am going to hit green lake after dark for some crappies with my father in law.

      Mielkez, I thought that the area you are now targeting was supposed to get the most snow from the coming storm. Cliff
    • AlwaysFishing23
      That’s exactly what finding right now nothing shallow. 20 seems key.
    • james_walleye
      I'd concentrate on the buffalo/annandale area just northwest of the metro. There's a ton of good lakes. Clearwater, Pulaski, pleasant. The list is long. 
    • Mielkez
      Alright guys. Change of plans. My group is concerned about lake travel. After consulting a snowfall map we've decided to stay south of the line that runs from basically Duluth to Lake Winnie area. Were coming from Wisconsin and don't know anything about MN lakes. Rather not do Mille Lacs. Looking for something a little smaller. Not asking for spots. Is there a lake within and hour or two to the north or east of the cities that fishes strong? Looking for panfish mostly with some walleye mixed in. Thanks. 
    • Rick G
      Pretty sure you DON'T know where this one is.... I see you creeping around, looking for my spots...lol
