  Minnkota ......

...... the Minnkota Traxxis 45 lb. thrust , w/digital maximizer (the mega important part) , it's a variable speed tiller , 12 volt ...

You'll want a good quality deep cycle marine battery , the higher the amp hr. rating , the longer it will last when using (think of amp hr. as how much fuel you got and how far you can go , and how much time you have) ... also the higher the amp hr. rating the larger and heavier the battery is . I'd say not less than 125 amp. hr. ... couple the Traxxis 45 w/digital maximizer , and a 125 amp. hr. batt. and you can go forever .

You also need a good 1 bank charger (2 bank chargers are for charging two batts.) , Minnkota sells one of those too ... I'd recomend the MK110P portable charger .

These Minnkota items aren't cheap , but they are great stuff that opens up long distance and times on the water with a single charge ...

there are cheaper ways to go , but they severely limit you ... if that's ok for your trips , like short day trips , then maybe cheaper will serve you ok ... but if you want backup go power for multi days on the water and all day running , then go the other way .
