cheating on the length chart
by John from Kansas City, Kansas on July 27, 2016
I cheated a little on the length chart for selecting the motor. The chart has a 23' boat on the upper edge of an 80# thrust Minn Kota. My new 80# thrust engine mount trolling motor has no problem pushing my 23' deck boat. I only have one small problem in that I am having a hard time finding a "sloooow" speed without shutting the motor off. It can be done but requires a soft touch. My wife really likes it because she complained a lot about the trolling motor bow mount bracket on our previous boat

My Question is , I do alot of trolling mostly for walleye, on my 18.5 Striper , and i use my Ipilot 80lbs thrust 24Volt bow mount trolling motor, , but i only get about 3.5 hrs of 2mph trolling time, then its time to go home, so what i would like to kno is , do these engine mounts motors use the same amount of power as mine, meaning will i still only get the same amount of time out of my batts? thanks?

Is this powerful enough to push my 25' Tiara on Lake Michigan trolling for salmon. If so...for how long.?
Yes you should be fine using the 160 lb thrust for your vessel.
