110% customer service

I took a chance on a product I knew little about, from a company I'd not heard of. After a short time I needed to use the 2yr warranty. The customer service was amazing from my initial inquiry to a completely replaced item was a little over a week. I received 11 emails during that time keeping me informed and aware of the options I had as a customer. When you need product support I feel like they're always a simple phone call away. That's rare

Pontoon fun

After being on a friends 20’ pontoon and seeing what this motor can do I decided to purchase the same one for my 24’ pontoon. Awesome motor. Pushes our boat with ease.

Excellent Product

The trolling motor does everything I need it to do. It's been extremely quiet in the midst of my fishing experiences.

Wonderful solution for sailboat

I bought one of these 12V 55-pound-thrust "pontoon" trolling motors a month ago, and have since attached the mount to the stern of my 29-foot, 8000-pound sailboat, and run wires from a new bank of LiFePO4 batteries to power the motor. It works great for getting in and out of the slip, and for getting home when the wind falls calm. The long 55" shaft allows the motor to reach well down into the water even from the top of my transom, and the simple mount allows me to easily raise the motor up out of the water when sailing; this combination of the very long shaft and simple, very sturdy "latch-and-door" mount (and the salt-water resistant materials) is what I have been waiting for for years! I made only two modifications: I soldered an XT-90 connector onto the ends of the power wires (so I can quickly mount the motor and connect it when I'm ready to go sailing), and I took off the head and reversed it (so the tiller extends forward when the propeller is aft, since my motor is mounted on the stern rather than the bow). I like this solution so much that I just bought one more identical motor to serve as a redundant backup, and in case I ever need twice as much thrust (my current mount is on the starboard side of my transom, and I will mount the new motor on the port side). I measured the current draw at full forward power of my first motor, with the boat tied up in the slip, at about 40 Amps, and my battery bank and cables can supply more than 100 Amps, so two motors at full power simultaneously should work fine.
