Am looking to get an inexpensive salt-water okay trolling motor. Given a 12v battery, I believe 55lbs thrust is the max. Any suggestions?

Also, want to sell a two stroke Seagull 6hp. It runs well. Is eBay my best option? Price range?

Thanks!

It is Bristol 24 sailboat. And, the motor is needed only to get out of the marina and down the estuary to the bay. Even one way is fine as the return is downwind.

There are Salt Water Riptide Minn Kotas for $410 as here: MINN KOTA Riptide Saltwater Transom Mount Trolling Motors | West Marine

And, a fresh water one WITH CHARGER :http://www.cabelas.com/product/MINN...T.mc_id=Shopzilla&WT.z_mc_id1=03926269&rid=40

The second one looks tempting if washing with freshwater after use is all it takes. Am assuming there are the same in most other ways. Did you mean that any freshwater can be maintained well with a rinse off after each use? All comments appreciated.
