Looking to see what everyone has to recommend for a trolling motor. Was looking at the 70 edge 52 inch shaft but after seeing the problems a buddy of mine has had on the same size boat I'm not sure. What do you guys think
I have and 80 riptide which moves mine pretty good, but they are times when I wish I had more. If I did it again I'd get a 112. It's only $100 more. I have the same size boat with a lot of weight in it.
Ive got an 80 riptide on a 1760 heavy allweld. Runs it just fine. Not worth the extra battery to go to a 101 to me, but if you are after speed maybe. But then again, if you are after speed it would be cheaper to do a kicker setup than buy a new troller and 3 good batteries
