Hi AAC. I have been pondering this thought for quite a while: Can a battery smaller than a marine deep cycle battery power a trolling motor? The reason I have though about this so much is the fact that a trolling motor alone costs basically $100 and a battery is at least another $75. I've been trying to find a motor that would be big enough to give a motor around 30-35 lbs of thrust but at the same time could be powered off of a small battery like the ones in model airplanes and cars. It would be nice if I could manage to get the battery to last 4ish hours on 1 charge. So I am basically looking to see if anyone has done a similar project and what their solution was and or some reccomendation son how to do this. All suggestions or information is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Shane
