What size trolling motor do I need?
The thrust needs to be at least 2 lbs. for every 100 lbs. of fully loaded boat weight. If the wind or current is a big factor in where you fish, you’ll want to increase your thrust.
Can you mount a trolling motor with a bow rail?
We are often asked if it is possible to install a motor on a boat. The answer is yes, but only with a lot of difficulty. Most bow rails get in the way of the trolly motor shaft because of the arcs required for it to swing.
How long will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor run?
A marine battery can last up to five hours. The age and condition of the battery is one of the factors that can affect this.
What size trolling motor do I need for a 20 foot boat?
If your boat is in the range of 18 to 20 feet, you may want to consider a 36-volt system. There is enough power in a 24v trolly motor to deal with any situation. The best motor for this size of bass boat is a 60′′ shaft that has 80 lbs of thrust.
How much thrust is 1 HP?
A unit of measurement is equal to the amount of work done in a second. There isn’t a correlation between thrust and power. If you’ve been told that fifteen pounds of thrust doesn’t equal one horsepower, you’re wrong.
How deep should I run my trolling motor?
6 inches of water above the blades is what the trolly motor’s ideal propeller should keep. The centerline of the motor and prop shaft should be at least 12 to 18 inches below the waterline.
What size trolling motor do I need for a 16 foot boat?
If your boat is less than 16 feet, a high-thrust 12-volt model will suffice. It’s the only way to go for hassle-free boating if your boat is any longer than it was.
Where is the best place to mount a trolling motor?
If there is a main motor, the trolly motor should be placed close to the center of the stern so that it doesn’t interfere with it. The stern’s top should be flush with the mount.
Can you mount a trolling motor on the side of a boat?
If you keep your motor toward the front or back, it doesn’t matter what side of the boat you use to mount it. Adding extra weight on the other side of the boat may be needed to compensate for mounting a trolly motor on the side of the boat.
