Minn Kota Endura C2 40 Freshwater Transom Mounted Trolling Motor (36

It's one of the best value and most dependable in this category of fishing boat engine I have reviewed and it features a rugged 8-speed box with 5 forward speeds and 3 reverse gears so there are not many situations that it cant handle.

Being a Minn Kota you dont need to worry about build quality or reliability. They have been making first-class motors for many years and that heritage shines through in all of their models, even the relatively cheap ones like the C2 40. High-grade materials and superior build quality are hallmarks of this brand, and this model lives up to all of those standards.

It features a sturdy 6 inch long handle which is contoured very well to fit your hand and is used to control the speed which means its , and steering is 6 inches long so it makes for easy accessibility and extra comfort when you want to just sit back and relax while you navigate the water.

It's also a very lightweight unit, weighing in at only 22 lbs so it's easy to remove which is great if you are an older fisherman or if you want to share it between a couple of your boats.

I was also very impressed by the resistance of the transom bracket to flexing, and warping which, as you will know if you are a sport fisherman can often be an issue brought about by long exposure to the sun.

Due to the high-quality materials and build quality,it is sure to out last its 2-year warranty.I purchased a 12- volt marine battery which has a 2-hour running life going constantly at high speed.

As you can imagine for the purpose of trolling the battery life is much longer.To add to that the motor is also equipped with a Digital Optimizer that reduces heat, and the damage it may cause, plus extends battery life.,So you should have no problem spending the whole day out on the water.

One of the great things about this entry-level motor is that you can also use it in saltwater. Read this article to find out why thats so important. I was lucky enough to have this motor for about a week during which time I managed to get out into the sea a couple of times, and I have to say I didn't encounter any problems.

Of course, it's always important to make sure you clean the motor down after using it in saltwater but, as I say, it performed faultlessly and showed no sign of ingress or corrosion. I have taken the Minn Kota Endora 40 in saltwater a few times and had no problem with corrosion, just made sure I removed it from the boat and washed it down with fresh water every time.

When I decided to purchase a new motor I took time to weigh my options, and investigate different boat engine manufacturers eventually I chose the Minn Kota Endura 40, for these reasons.Minn Kota has been building fishing boat motors for 68 years, has a well-earned reputation as the leader in innovation, and technology in the trolling motor industry.

The Minn Kota Endura 40 motor far exceeded my expectations and needs,It is both reliable, lightweight, and easy to use. I have nothing negative to say about it, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys fishing and boating. So, whether you are a  leisure fisherman or a professional, this motor is a perfect choice.
