We put Riptide® ST to the test, because we know you will. After thousands of hours of research and field testing, we made it quiet enough to give you the drop on fish and tough enough to withstand the most extreme conditions. We know saltwater anglers never turn down a challenge. As it turns out, neither do we.

Comments about Minn Kota Riptide RT80/ST/iP Saltwater Bow Mount Trolling Motors with i-Pilot, 80 lb. Thrust, 54" Shaft, 24V:
Ordered the motor online and had it shipped to store in 2 days. Arrived on time, installed easily with the quick release bracket, and was on the water the next day. I upgraded from another minn kota 24v tiller model, and this motor was well worth the money. I can fish from anywhere on the boat, and don't have to worry about getting off course when you turn your back to re rig a rod, or fight a fish. Autopilot feature is great, I've already stored a few tracks and anchor points. The motor recalls these in memory right away, and stays true to the original location. Spot lock feature is very useful in deeper water. I don't even carry an anchor anymore, between this and my ppwer pole I don't see the need. Performs very well in the fast tides and winds of the NE FL inshore waterways and creeks. Highly recommended
