A used Minn Kota like mine. Used it three times now that I can remember. If you are thinking of trolling a long time in bigger water with waves, get a used twin cylinder four stroke Yamaha or Honda.


My other auto is a .45

Minn kota but I'd get the largest one you can find. Highest thrust. I've never, EVER been in a boat where I wished the trolling motor was less powerful.

And rig it up on 2 batteries. Will last a long time.

Used 1950s-60s Evinrude/Johnson Lightwin 3 HP outboard. 2 cylinder. Water cooled. 2 stroke so you do mix gas. Self contained 1/3 gallon tank that will troll for almost a full day. 35 lbs. but built like a tank. Easy to maintain. Lots of new as well as used parts still available. Dependable and purrs like a kitten! Great for canoes and small (<14 ft.) boats on smaller bodies of water.

Many are still around, especially in the midwest, and many are still in nice shape. I've paid between $50 and $250 for the ones that I have had. My Grandfather's 1954 Evinrude still gets a lot of trolling use every year! Find you a nice olive drab "Ducktwin" and you will really have a nice piece. Those can bring as high as $1000 now for a nice restored one.

Will add: The electrics are nice and quiet but often don't do that well in the wind and you have to lug around that PITA deep cycle battery. The 4 stokes tend to be a little heavier as well, at least liquid cooled ones and they have no "soul". They are quiet and smooth trollers though. With the 2 stoke you get the exhaust and odor that many don't like. Too me it is almost like pipe smoke... I kind of like the smell in measured doses! Same reason I still like old Hodakas too... grateful I was around for the 60's and early 70's!!!
