What size electric 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.
Where do you mount a trolling motor on a deck boat?
It makes sense to put the motor in front of the gate since it is close to the center line of the bow. Many pontoons have “half-gates” that can be used for trolly motors.
Are hurricane boats good for the ocean?
Hurricane boats are not designed to be used in open and deep ocean. Inland water and protected bays are the best places to stay.
How fast will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor go?
When you have a bigger boat, you will need the larger-sized motor. If you don’t, your boat won’t be able to hit anything.
What size trolling motor do I need for a 21 foot boat?
You can begin to think about a 36-volt system for your boat if it’s in the range of 18 to 20 feet. 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.
Can I run my trolling motor out of the water?
The motor won’t be affected by the water as much as it would be if it were submerged. There is no reason for a trolly motor to be in the water. The battery may be wasted and the motor may be damaged by doing so. Wouldn’t it be better if you ran it out of water?
Do trolling motors scare fish?
There are many different factors that can affect whether or not a troll is biting fish.
Can your trolling motor shaft be too long?
Too long a motor shaft is not good. If the motor shaft is too long, you can’t put the motor in the correct position. The environment beneath the water can be damaged if the shaft is too long.
Does trolling motor need to be centered?
The center of the bow or transom doesn’t have to be perfect for most trolly motor designs. The mounting pad needs to be on the bow or transom.
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’s not a wrong answer as it depends on how you operate the boat and how you fish. You should consider mounting the motor on the starboard side if you steer the boat from the port side.
Does a trolling motor have to be mounted level?
Before you place your trolly motor on the surface, you want it to be level in both directions. If you want to make it level with the use of shims or a different thickness, you need to make sure the surface of the motor is level.
Do deck boats ride rough?
A deck boat with a V-shaped hull can handle rough water, even if it’s a bowrider. The deck boat hull won’t cut through waves, so they will bounce and be thrown. It is a good idea to use a deck boat to avoid rough water.
How big of a trolling motor do I need for a 16 ft 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 many pound trolling motor do I need?
When the boat is full of fuel, people, tackle, etc., we recommend selecting a motor that has at least 2 lbs. of thrust for every 100 lbs.
What size trolling motor do I need for a 18 foot pontoon boat?
The trolling motor shaft is the most important part of a pontoon boat.
