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...

      Where are you located?

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
