## What is the fastest trolling motor on the market?

Minn Kota has introduced the most powerful trolling motor on the market featuring 112 pounds of thrust.

## How fast is the fastest trolling motor?

The distillate marine diesel is by far the quickest of all the fuels available. 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 fast can a trolling motor go?

Having a maximum speed of only 5 mph may seem slow, but it is what makes trolling motors ideal for fishing. Many people use trolling motors as their primary means of propulsion. This is popular on Jon Boats, dinghys, and other small personal watercraft.

## Will 2 trolling motors make you go faster?

Two motors in the back will just push the bow a little higher in the air, and the stern will dig in deeper, slowing you down. The boat will be faster with a trolling motor if it’s level in the water.

## What is the strongest electric trolling motor?

The most powerful electric trolling motor is made by Minn Kota. and is available in several configurations, including the Minn Kota Ultrex and Minn Kota Terrova detailed above. The 36-volt motor boasts an unparalleled 112 pounds of thrust.

## Do all trolling motors go the same speed?

Electric trolling motors are chosen by thrust. Higher pounds of thrust WILL NOT move a boat faster. In fact two 55 pound thrust motors will not move you any faster than one 30 pound thrust motor. … The maximum speed of a trolling motor is 5 mph regardless of how many pounds of thrust.

## How fast is a 70 lb thrust trolling motor?

A 70lb thrust trolling motor will have a speed of about 8 miles/hour or 15 km/hr.

## How many horsepower is a 30 lb thrust trolling?

## What lb thrust trolling motor do I need?

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 strong is a 30 lb thrust trolling motor?

Not my area of knowledge but this guide recommends a minimum of 2lb per 100lbs boat weight. So the maximum for a 30lb thrust motor would be 30*100/2= 1500lbs.

## How far in the water should a trolling motor be?

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.

## Will a higher thrust trolling motor go faster?

Thrust is simply a static measurement of pushing or pulling power, and higher thrust does not necessarily mean greater speed. Speed is a factor of prop pitch and motor R.P.M. Given motor R.P.M. under load, and Minn Kota’s 4″ prop pitch, the approximate speed that a motor will push/pull a small boat can be calculated.

## Can you use a car battery on a trolling motor?

deep discharge cycling a car battery (using it for a trolling motor) will ruin it rather quickly. a trolling motor battery is designed to deliver a modest amount of current for a longer period of time. it is designed to tolerate deep discharge/recharge cycles.
