Swapped out the 55# Minn Kota for 80# Minn Kota yesterday and hope that gets me going a little faster. Gonna need a new battery or maybe two if I swap the one out I have now. Don't think I want lithium or even the gel. Currently have Everstart and may go with another one of those. I don't have to troll like I used to beating the banks. Which ones are you guys liking?
