MINN KOTA Minn Kota® E-Drive Electric Outboard

Have local restrictions on gas outboards put a damper on your weekends at the lake? Is your pontoon boat virtually grounded? Minn Kota has a solution with the new E-Drive Electric Outboard. The quiet 2hp power plant will move a full-size pontoon up to 5 mph without fumes or harmful emissions. Runs off a 48-volt system for up to 2 hours at 100% power on a full charge. To keep accurate tabs on your battery, a back-lit Realtime Digital Battery Gauge gives you an instant reading of how many hours of run time you have left. It also features a fuel gauge showing battery condition, as well as throttle power level. The ultraresponsive throttle lever has forward, neutral and reverse positions, plus it includes key lock-out and a trim switch. The throttle lever mounts either on the binnacle or side-mount at the cockpit for convenience. You don't even have to run new steering cables as the E-Drive connects directly to your boat's standard cable steer linkage. The stainless steel prop uses a special shear pin to protect it from damage when encountering underwater obstacles. The replaceable, hub-mounted zinc anode also helps fight galvanic corrosion. Two-year warranty.

Question

Do they make minn kota trolling motor props for speed?

I have a terrova 101 on a 24' pontoon. It will pull at 3.8mph. I'm willing to give up the weed wedge feature for more speed. Do they make a prop that will enable me to go just a bit faster? Perhaps a prop from the e-drive or torqeedo model?
Please let me know if something is available and part number and availability.

Will the i-pilot control two trolling motors at the same time? Maybe I could add another second motor to get speed when needed.

thanks,
Chuck

The Minn Kota® E-Drive Electric Outboard does not have a speed prop option listed, but you can contact Minnkota directly at 800-227-6433 to see if they have any ideas for you. As for the copilot, they are set up for an individual motor.
