    Default Transom Mount Trolling motor thrust question?

    What thrust trolling motor would you recommend for a 15 foot Gheenoe?

    I was thinking 55 lbs should be ok for a transom mount motor on freshwater lakes?

    Nice to see someone else in the Gheenoe club. I have a 13' that i have rigged up. A 55lb should work just fine, I run a 36lb with no problems at all. I would recommend mounting it on the bow though. Trolling motors work much better pulling rather than pushing, esp in the wind. With it on the stern you will end up getting spun in circles alot. You can build a trolling motor mount for less than 15 bucks.
