This is same motor as our short shaft trolling motors, but it has longer, 90cm (35cm) shaft. It is suitable to be used on a front bow motor mount of FB boats.
Trolling motors with electric power offer silent movement, clear environment and low prices. To make boating more affordable and save environment, we are now offering 55lbs 12V Trolling Motors that are popular in Europe and Australia.
Our 55lbs model uses 12V, with 50 Amp Max Draw. Battery Level reader built into controller housing displays accurate available battery power, and shows when battery need a recharging.
This electric trolling motor is salt water ready, and can be used in an ocean, but we highly recommend washing it out with fresh water after each salt water use to extend motor's lifespan.
To operate this Trolling motor you will need 12V Deep Cycle battery that sold in any hardware or auto store. You can get Deep Cycle battery in Wall-Mart or Costco for about $55. High-end Deep Cycle battery will run about $140. To charge battery you will also need Battery Charger, that will run about $30 to $60 depending on a brand.
QUICK TIP: The best set up in our opinion is to have 2 smaller deep cycle batteries instead of 1 full-size heavy one. It is much easier to separately move 2 smaller batteries than haul 1 heavy standard size battery. Small foldable hand cart is highly recommended to move full size deep cycle batteries. But, if you have 2 small batteries, as sold at Outdoor World for example, then you can use first battery to ride to your fishing destination, and once it is fully depleted, use second battery to get back. This way, you don't have to wonder if remaining juice in only one full-size deep cycle battery would be enough for you to get back.
