Fish: that sounds like it will work just fine. For a power drive that's a decent price also. Now go get it so you can fish with us :D

I like my PD50, but it is strain on the back to retract it back in the boat. There are better trollers from that perspective. I'd check out the mechanics of deployment and retraction. Experienced fisherman have had same comment after jerking the motor back into the locked position. Other than that, it's great for trolling from your side console seat or anywhere in boat. Lasts an entire day of tooling around my 16' aluminum side console. Heard a few stories about circuit board failure and I personally returned a dead one to Cabelas.com, but that was a remanufactured one.
