Comments about Riptide RT55/SM/L&D/SC Saltwater Bow Mount Trolling Motor, 55lb.Thrust, 52" Shaft, 12V:
Good power and quiet. I've just started using it on a 19 ft. flats boat so I can't speak to the reliability yet. I've read complaints about the force it takes to pull the engaging/locking spring and I've had no such problems. In fact if you depress the unit with your foot as your pulling the cord there is almost no resistance at all.
