    Default Electric Troll Motor?

    I'm looking at buying a used electric trolling motor; what kind of battery do I need to run it? I have a deep cycle marine battery and a deep cycle marine starting battery. At this point the batteries are not hooked up together.

    Also, can I run an electric motor in the salt water if I rinse it after using it?

    Minkota makes a model for salt and its more of a white color. The others are black. I don't think it would be good to run in the salt with most of them. I never have so I really don't know. Maybe you could try it and lets us know how it goes. Kind of wish I'd got one for salt when I bought one but they are a bit more money.
