The Minn Kota Riptide SP RT55/CP 55 lb 48" 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 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, it 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.
