I have a 2003 17" sailfish. The trolling motor is almost done and starting to think about a replacement. When it was new the TM seemed to push boat pretty good. It is a motor guide 12 Volt 55lb. I would need to add a third battery to go with a 24volt system or just go with another 55lb 12 Volt. Looking for suggestions or maybe someone else with a similar size boat and what they have done.
I can run my skiff against a good current to be able to fish under bridges - and if I forget to put it on the charger at the end of a long day... I'll still have enough juice for a second day... The most valuable feature - that spot lock... With it I haven't reached for an anchor once since I installed it - it's that good in places like rivers where otherwise an anchor at every spot would be required...
Hope this helps... "Aren't boats fun?"
