Are Aquos trolling motors good?
The Aquos is a significant improvement. Smooth acceleration, responsive wireless control, good hand-held remote. The foot control is a tad cumbersome – too big – but responsive. Had a little trouble with the sparse operating instructions, but the motor is pretty intuitive.
What is the strongest thrust trolling motor?
Minn Kota has introduced the most powerful trolling motor on the market featuring 112 pounds of thrust.
How deep should a trolling motor be in the water?
A trolling motor’s ideal propeller should be at a depth that keeps about 6 inches of water above the blades. In other words, the centerline of the motor and the prop shaft should be about 12-18 inches below the waterline, depending on the make, model and dimensions of the trolling motor.
How fast will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor go?
Assuming perfect riding conditions, the use of the best fuel i.e. the distillate marine diesel, and moderate load, 55-pound trolling motors are likely to attain a maximum speed of only 5 miles per hour.
How many horsepower is a 55 lb thrust trolling?
And here we mainly discuss the pounds to thrust on the boating field with a relatively limited thrust range commonly seen as below and not the jet engine field. So 1 hp trolling motor basically equals to 70 lbs of thrust, and about 0.6 horsepower is a 55 lb thrust trolling.
How many pounds of thrust do I need for a trolling motor?
General rule of thumb: you need at least 2 lbs. of thrust for every 100 lbs. of fully-loaded boat weight (people and gear included). If things like wind or current are major factors where you fish, you’ll want a little extra thrust.
How far below the boat should the prop be?
If you have a short shaft motor, the top most part of the transom and the lower most part of the boat should be about 15 to 16 inches. For a long shaft, I think 20 to 21 inches is correct. Some mornings it just doesn’t seem worth it to gnaw through the leather straps.
