Justin Robert Ziegler asks: Ok, I am mounting a Minn Kota riptide 55lb thrust trolling motor to the front of my boat. I plan on building a small deck to mount the motor on to but to also hide the battery. My question is, what type of battery should I get for it? I’ve heard alot of different things such as two lawn/garden batteries. I want to more than likely get one marine battery to save weight but how long does a marine battery last on a single charge? TIA

My battary lasts 2 trips

Deep cycle marine battery from Wal-Mart is yr best bet

Don’t matter just get minn kotta battery charger and it will be fine

I got marine deep cycle and get about 8 hours of run time. From Napa about 130.00

You need a circuit breaker otherwise you will burn a hole in your boat if those wires ever short out
