Product Description

Precision maneuverability. Accurate bait presentation. Meticulous speed control. You count on your trolling motor for a lot. And along the way, it has to fight corrosion, run quietly and perform with flawless reliability. Riptide SM is the trusted powerhouse that meets those challenges head on, keeping you in position to make the catch of the day, every day. The Latch and Door bracket utilizes non-binding nylon inserts and anti-sieze lubricant for a lifetime of trouble free use. The new RipTide hand control gives you the best of both worlds with its new Tilt/Extend Tiller handle. It can both tilt (up to 45 degrees) and extend (up to 6") to adjust to any situation and any style of fishing. This unit features five forward speed and three reverse, 55lbs of thrust and a 42" shaft.

Size Name: 52-Inch Shaft with Digital Maximizer Verified Purchase
This MinnKota is exactly what I was looking for. Strongest thrust for a 12 volt motor that I could find. After using a speed number motor for many years, and never being able to get the speed exactly right, I went with a variable speed motor with a digital maximizer which is only available on a variable speed motor. I have used the new motor on two occasions so far and it has worked perfectly with any tide-wind combination. I am using it on a 16' aluminum boat, both trips the tide was going out and it was a fairly windy day, yet when I checked the battery when I got home after the second trip it still showed to be full. I used the motor approximately 5 hours each day. When I put my smart charger on the battery it showed to still have 12.3 volts, I went ahead and charged the battery and it shut off, battery full, rechecked the voltage and it was 13.3 volts. The digital maximized really works.

After reading several reviews and seeing where people state it is extremely hard to release the motor to put it in the water I did not find that to be true. If you install the release rope properly, by running the rope UNDER the stainless pin instead off over the top of the pin it works easily. For those of you with that problem please check how you installed the rope and see if changing it doesn't solve your problem. I couldn't imagine a company like MinnKota engineering a motor with that kind of a problem.

This was not a gift; I purchased the motor for myself and could not be happier. It was definitely a two man job to install this motor, it is impossible to hold a backup and tignten the bolts by yourself.

Size Name: 52-Inch Shaft Verified Purchase
I got this MinnKota Riptide 55 SM/SC bowmount trolling motor after my water snake trolling motor went out on my in less than a year. You get what you pay for i guess and this MinnKota is worth every penny! It out performs my old broken down water snake in every aspect. I have it on my 16' scout 162 and it has more than enough power to pull it through the water even straight into 15+mph winds with no problem at all something my water snake could never do. From install to all day performance you cant go wrong with this motor!

Size Name: 52-Inch Shaft
This is an awesome trolling motor with plenty of power. We have it on our 18 foot aluminum boat and it does the job smoothly and with little effort!
