Re: Electric Trolling motors opinions
on a 20 foot boat in freshwater, with no current... yeah even a small trolling motor will be fine... a single battery (deep cycle) will run for several hours on a charge. If you are going to top it off by plugging in at home, you'll be fine.
40 watt solar panel not necessary, unless you plan on motoring everywhere...
Western NC lake? hmmm Hickory, or further west than that?
