Last summer I purchased a Colorado XT pontoon boat. Tried it at a local reservoir in the wind and that thing wore me out.
I want to put a Trolling motor on it.
Specs say 36" Shaft and 30lb Thrust max.
I might get a deal on a 40lb thrust. Seems light

What do the rest of the "Tooners" use and what should the Max really be?

Also where are some good sloughs to take it for some LMB fishing? general area no secret spots unless you don't mind.
