Endura 30 on a Wenonah Backwater canoe
Posted by: old_user on Mar-24-12 9:58 PM (EST)
I don't want an outboard motor for the canoe and have seen minkota 30 motors on sportspal 14'.
would a endura 30 work on the wenonah Backwater 15' square stern or should I go with a traxiss 45

I have a Minnkota Endura 30lb. thrust for 15 years and still going strong.

thanks-I bought the 30 endura at Gander mountain and they said I have up to 30 days to bring it back. I did read about the variable 45LB thrust but didn't know if it was worth the extra money and a lot of reviews I have read said the 30 was enough but money is not an issue and I might as well bite the bullet and get the 55LB variable and now I have to find out if I can go on some lakes in the adairondaks with the minkota as they might put it in the same class as a motor boat.
you can shorten the Traxxis shaft .....|

When I bought the battery from advantage auto or whatever-I measured the voltage and it read 13.8 volts.

tomorrow we will be out all day on the lakje and I will see how long the battery lasts-I found a good way to mount the fishfinder transducer inside the canoe and I can take it out everytime and put it back in without any marking to the bottom of the canoe.
