Can i use this trolling motor on mt 16 ft 110 johson motor fishing boat?
Hi David- Yes this Minn Kota 70lb thrust with 52" shaft will work for other style boats than just a pontoon. Please make certain that the electric system is 24 volt. You also should consider the shaft length as typically a pontoon uses a longer shaft; whereas, your 16 foot fishing boat might have a shallower requirement for shaft.

Is this model designed for use in salt/brackish water?
Unfortunately, this is only for freshwater applications. It would not work in salt water.

Is this trolling motor 12v or 24v?
It is a 12 volt trolling motor.
