## Can you make a trolling motor faster?

Replace the Existing Motor

Look out for one which **has a higher power output** and if possible, of larger size and larger pitch propeller. The new motor will definitely boost the power and the performance of the canoe on the whole.

## Will a higher thrust trolling motor go faster?

Thrust is simply a static measurement of pushing or pulling power, and **higher thrust does not necessarily mean greater speed**. Speed is a factor of prop pitch and motor R.P.M. Given motor R.P.M. under load, and Minn Kota’s 4″ prop pitch, the approximate speed that a motor will push/pull a small boat can be calculated.

## Will 2 trolling motors make you go faster?

By using two trolling motors, you’ll get the benefit of having **double the thrust**. Although you won’t go twice as fast, it’s still an upgrade from a single motor. … Most trolling motors have a top speed of 4 to 6 mph that they can’t exceed.

## How fast will a 112 lb thrust trolling motor go?

Ultimately a 112 lb. thrust trolling motor will still have a maximum speed of **around 5 mph**. If you are looking for quicker response time and better overall performance, bigger is better.

## How fast is an 80 lb thrust motor?

## What is the best battery to use for a trolling motor?

Most trolling motor batteries fail due to lack of proper charging. We suggest selecting a **12 volt deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating**, usually a group 27 size battery. The higher the amp hour rating, the more run time you will receive.

## How many horsepower is 55 lbs of thrust?

If you’re getting the full 55 lbf of thrust at this speed, then your hull has 55 lbf total resistance at this speed. 55 lbf = 0.245 kN, so (0.245 kN)*(1 m/s) = 0.245 kNm/s = 0.245 kW. That’s about **1/3 hp**.

## What size battery do I need for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

To use an example, a 55 lb thrust motor unit has a peak power draw of 40 amps. If you use the trolling motor for 6 hours at average 50% load of 20 amps, the trolling motor will then require a battery load of **120 Ah**.
