My beautiful 17 Super Sport Limited has a Johnson/Suzuki 90 four stroke motor. Very nice; super quiet and smooth.

I'm looking to install a trolling motor. In interest of keeping the weight down, I've thought of a nice electric motor. Found a fairly new electric rated at 74# of thrust (24VDC) Any ideas on how well this would work on the Whaler?

If it's not enough power, what size gas trolling motors are being used on 17's?

Thanks!

Ted
