    Default Trolling motor

    I have a SJX boat and want to have a foot operated trolling motor installed on the front of the boat. Where is a good place to take it to have it done. Wasilla Anchorage area. Also how big of one should I get the boat is 22 feet. THanks Chris

    Should be an easy task with a few beers. Have you picked out which one you want to install yet? I put one on my bass boat when I lived down south and it was really simple. Not sure of the size though.

    fyi; A friend has a minn kota terrova 36 volt w/101 lbs of thrust on a 20 ft.weldcraft. His suggestion was that i look at 24 volt w/80 lbs thrust for my 18-6ft boat and 60" shaft length. ( 1 less battery for me) yes they are high priced! but have foot pedal and remote control also. the main feature i'm looking at is the "spot lock" for jigging. (i'm tired of pulling in anchor in 200 ft.of water)be sure to read well on the specs first! right now, i'm s**t**g in one hand and wishing in the other, ha. from internet i've read to guesstimate shaft length, find length from bow to water level plus 18" available below water level. guess time will tell if this is a reality for me or just a gas attach. with this unit, i'd also get a 50 amp circuit breaker and a quick-release mount.

    Talk with Ben at silver streak boats in Anchorage...
    Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

    Just get Collette a paddle. An adequate one should be under $20 at WalMart.
