Picking a Bay Boat Trolling Motor:
- Increasing numbers of bay boat owners are opting for i-Pilot GPS motors
- 80lbs thrust is a common choice for mid-size Carolina Skiff, Pathfinder, Skeeter, Sea-Vee and similar type boats
- Purchase and install a quick release bracket - it will make life a lot easier for storage, service, trailering and boat covers.
Bay Boat Thrust Selection
Please remember that boat weight is the most important criteria to use when selecting an appropriate motor size. Boat length is provided as a helpful guideline but should not be used as a primary determinant of motor size. If you're unsure how much your boat weighs, you can look it up in the NADA boat directory. Learn more in our detailed Thrust Guide.
