Get the biggest voltage you boat space will allow and get the biggest thrust you can afford for that voltage. I have a 75lb on my 14' Jon boat and wouldn't have it any other way unless I could find a way to run 36v instead of 24v.

36 volt, 112 lb thrust Minn Kota I pilot. Be the best money you ever spent. 52" or 62" shaft if you plan on using it in the gulf.

What the others said. Minimum 80lb thrust but I'd opt for the 112 at 36v. The 101lb can move my 22' bay boat about 3mph or just over. I'd also opt for the 60" shaft. You'll never wish you had gone shorter but there will be days when you wish you'd gotten the longer shaft if you didn't.

Will have to look, I guess. 36V is a lot just for storage's sake.

I was thinking about an iPilot, but might be able to get a RipTide for free.

And for the interest of just wondering, the iPilot will act as an anchor, basically?
