The Minn Kota® Riptide 80 Saltwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor is designed with large windings and commutators that dissipate heat for cool operation, extended battery power and long motor life. The motor features a 62" composite shaft that is stronger than stainless steel and resists breaking, kinking and corrosion. The electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight, heat-shrink tubing to keep out saltwater, and the premium-grade marine alloys and aluminum upper arms are finished with 5-mil TGIC polyester, powder-coat paint for corrosion protection.
