The SP RT55/CP Minn Kota Riptide Trolling Motor is easy-to-use, ultra-quiet and saltwater-tested. SP is saltwater engineered and tested to put more power and greater control at your fingertips, making trolling motor worries a distant memory. The deploy-assist lever on this 48" Minn Kota trolling motor puts you in motion and in pursuit of fish quickly and easily. Depress the lever to deploy the motor and you're ready to go. When it's time to move, this 55 lb trolling motor stows easily and securely, and is ready for action whenever you are. The new i-Pilot frees you up to focus on fishing. It uses GPS technology to remember paths and fishing spots on the water, activate cruise control, and give you command of speed, steering and Advanced AutoPilot. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power and longer motor life. And its unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise.
Review 1 for Minn Kota Riptide SP RT55/CP 55 lb 48" Motor
RT/SP/CP-55 lbs. Extremely hard to deploy and stow
By westbrazos ,
The trolling motor works fine.Wish I'd have bought a little more Thrust. I thought for a 16 foot Alumacraft this would be enough.A little slow in the wind. The real problem comes when deploying and stowing.The foot of the trolling motor rest in a cradle.This was a good idea,BUT,to get the foot out of the cradle requires a hefty pull and push.I seriouly don't think a whimp could get it to budge.I have to get myself in a certain position to take on this chore.I called Minn Kota and they said this was a norm.Geez.
