Product Description
minn_kota This rugged saltwater powerhouse features outstanding performance and standard CoPilot. Stow/deploy mechanism lets you move effortlessly in and out of the water.

Stow And Deploy
Simply depress the handle, and fall-away ramps effortlessly deploy the motor into the water. The balanced motor design makes stowing easy, and a special master cut-off switch automatically turns the power off when stowed.

CoPilot
Gives you control of speed, steering, and On/Off controls, along with a new high speed bypass control for instant full power. You can also now activate your AutoPilot from anywhere on the boat, including the platform!

Digital Maximizer
Up to five times more run time on a single battery charge. Conventional speed coil technology wastes energy by delivering a constant flow of power to the motor, regardless of the speed setting, and results in wasted energy.

Advanced Corrosion Protection
Riptide features premium-grade marine alloys, including aluminum upper arms that are virtually impervious to oxidative corrosion (rust). Metals undergo a rigid multi-step cleaning process before being anodized or coated with a special zinc dichromate armor plating. All components are then finished with a 5-mil TGIC polyester, powder-coated paint.

Fully Encapsulated Electronics
Riptide control boards are fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane to protect the electronic circuitry. All electrical connections are sealed with liquid-tight heat shrink tubing to form an impregnable barrier against the destructive effects of saltwater.

Sacrificial Anode
A sacrificial anode protects the motor from galvanic corrosion. Saltwater attacks the zinc anode (discretely located on the prop hub) which can be easily replaced when necessary. The result is better protection and longer motor life.

Cool, Quiet Power
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than Minn Kota. Extra large windings and commutators are used to dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. A unique bearing system produces low rpms/high torque to cut down on fish-spooking noise.

Indestructible Composite Shaft
The standard of the industry since 1991! Pound for pound, an ultra high-yield composite material has been tested to be three times the strength of stainless steel. Virtually indestructible, it flexes on impact and then returns to its original position. Unlike stainless steel, it will not kink, break, rust, or corrode.

Warranty
Riptide ST bow-mount trolling motors feature a two-year warranty.

        Comments about Minn Kota Riptide ST RT80/ST/CP Saltwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor:

        Co-pilot enables you to concentrate on fishing and not on trying to steer the boat. I can troll all day, and the motor is strong enough to move my 19' skiff at about 5 mph. My motor is six years old and has been a joy to own, with no problems at all.
