How big of a trolling motor do I need for my boat?
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.
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 used to be.
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.
How fast will a 30 lb thrust trolling motor go?
You will need the larger-sized motor when you have a larger boat, even though the 30lb, 40lb, and 55lb thrust trolling motors all top out at 5 miles per hour. If you don’t, your boat won’t be able to hit anything.
Why are trolling motors on the front of a boat?
The boats tend to go in different directions. It’s easier to pull a boat than to push one. The bow of the boat can be moved sideways compared to the transom. A bow-mounted electric motor allows for more control of the boat.
Do I really need a saltwater trolling motor?
Yes, that is correct. There is no need for immediate damage to the freshwater motor. There is a higher risk for metal components to be damaged. After using the trolly in saltwater, rinse it with freshwater and apply a thin coat of oil or grease.
Where should a trolling motor be placed?
If there is a main motor, the trolly motor should be placed close to the center of the stern to not interfere with it. The stern’s top should be flush with the mount.
What side of a boat do you mount a trolling motor?
The port or starboard side of the bow is where you want the motor to be mounted. It depends on how you operate the boat and how you catch fish. You should consider mounting the motor on the starboard side if you steer the boat from the port side.
