OK, I'm in the market for a new trolling motor in the 55# thrust area.
I'm looking at the Minn-kota Maxxum in the variable speed. My boat is
18' long and the current trolling motor is an older 40# thrust Minn-Kota
that came with the boat when I bought it new in 2003. I always thought
the trolling motor was undersized to push my boat around and I finally
managed to crack the housing back enough to replace it. Does anyone
have any thoughts about what would be the best choice and where to pick
one up. I was at the BPS in Vegas yesterday, but the store was out of
stock of that model. As a matter of fact, the online store is also back
ordered. Cabela's is about $80 cheaper for the Maxxum, so I may go
that way unless someone can suggest a Motorguide alternative? Thanks.
