Saltwater Trolling Motor Lifespan
For those of you who fish every week using a trolling motor, how many years have you gotten out of your motor? Mine is 5.5 years old now, a Minnkota Riptide, and has performed great since day one but it has corroded deeply on the motor housing where contact is made when raising and stowing the motor. I doubt it will make it beyond another year or two max. I always rinsed it well and have repainted it once and now put a little grease on the corroded area to slow down the inevitable. Any advice here guys?
