    I'm going to be buying a bow mount this week, what do I need to look at as far as what thrust I will need for my boat? Weight, length, hull design? Do these all come into play in deciding? My boat is a 19', how do I know whether to get 12 or 24 volt? I have no clue about tis stuff, help me out here.:confused: :D
     
  2. 24v at least, the more thrust the better (@ least 70#'s). I also like the longer shafts, you can always raise the power head if you need too.
     

  3. what kind of boat? where are you fishing? (inland lakes, reservoirs, the big pond?) you might even want to think about a 36volt trolling motor... just a thought

    I'll be fishing Erie and the Portage river mostly. I'm fishing in a 19' Spectrum with a 4 cylinder I/O which I imagine is a heavier boat than one with an outboard.
