  1. i'm in the process of buying a 1448 jon boat. what i was wondering is what size trolling motor for this boat? i live at rockyfork lake in hillsboro oh. can't wait to to start fishing!!!!
  2. 40 to 60 would be my guess, the 1448, thats a tracker grizzley type boat right? They are pretty light, depends on how much you put on the boat.

    A 40 should be plenty, but in tough wind conditions you'll proabably want a 55

    I had a 40 on my old jon boat and it did great, untill the wind started to pick up then you want one with a little more power.
