Glad ya got your answers....fer years I used "fresh water" boats in Blackwater Bay and they had fresh water trollers...I'm purty particular about cleaning my junk, and I never had an issue with freshwater trollers...

My dad had a hobie power skiff and we would take it out and troll down the beach for kings and spanish when I was a kid. I saw the exact same one for sale over in Pensacola a few years back and I wish I would have bought it.

It's a 2001 boat.
Last I heard Wagner sold the Hobie molds to a company in California.

Don't know if they are still making them or not.

I looked through all their stuff and cant find a website and looks as if their facebook hasn't had activity since 2016. Guessing they aren't making them anymore. Thats a shame.

Just spray paint that trolling motor white and it will be fine.
