How Do I Choose the Right Size Outboard Boat Motor?

0

The first thing you should take into account is the size of your boat. Thus you will understand what voltage you need (12v, 24v, or 36v). Other key considerations are thrust, shaft length, propeller and cost. My advice is to read the article on https://trollingmotorsguide.com/what-size-trolling-motor-do-i-need/ which includes much useful info on the topic and can ease the process of search.

Choosing the right outboard boat motor requires careful consideration of many factors. Boat size and the intended use are perhaps the most important two. Others considerations when choosing an outboard boat motor include the type of water on which the boat will be used as well as the experience of the boat owner; inexperienced boat owners should choose an outboard boat motor that is not as powerful as the type used by experienced boat operators. The design of the outboard boat motor can also be a determining factor since some designs are not offered in all sizes of motor. Placing an outboard boat motor on a boat that is too big for it can lead to many problems. One of the most noticeable is the inability of the boat to come up on plane. A small motor is not able to generate the speed to allow a large boat to rise up out of the water. This can also be a safety issue, as the motor may not be able to push a large boat against a strong current. This can lead to a boat being out of control
