    Comments about Motorguide R3-40 HT Freshwater Transom-Mount Trolling Motor, 40lb.Thrust, 36 Shaft, 12V:

    plenty of power for a 12 volt,, but seems pretty heavy. sturdy construction, with a much more solid feel than a comparable Minn Kota (I've had a few of both) Recently had a one year old Minn Kota burn out on me, but have had some that lasted 12 yrs. If somebody could start stocking some type of weed guard for them , that would be good.
