Riptide SP and ST ModelsThe saltwater-engineered design of these bow-mount Riptide motors puts more power and greater control at your fingertips. Minn Kota’s popular CoPilot (CP) remote accessory comes standard on all Riptide SP and ST models. CoPilot allows you to control speed, steering, On/Off functions, even activate the new high speed bypass control (ST models) for instant full power–all from the palm of your hand. Models equipped with Patented AutoPilot (AP) utilize a state-of-the-art compass system that locks onto a particular heading, and automatically makes adjustments to keep your boat moving in that direction. SP models feature a deploy-assist lever that quickly and easily puts you in pursuit of the fish. Simply engage the lever to deploy the motor. Top of the line ST models feature the Stow & Deploy system that uses fallaway ramps to effortlessly deploy the motor into the water.

Comments about Riptide SP and ST Saltwater Bow Mount Trolling Motors:
The recommendation was for a 55 pound thrust motor. My decision to use the 70 was the right one. After fishing the St Lucie inlet on a heavy incoming tide, it proved itself worth the extra cost. Great product, at a great price.
