## Will 2 trolling motors make you go faster?

Will 2 trolling motors make you go faster? A dual trolling motor can increase the speed of your inflatable boat. It won’t turn your vessel into a speed boat. However, it can boost the speeds to ensure you’ll consistently hit the motor’s top speeds.

## How many horsepower is a 35 lb thrust trolling motor?

So every 746 watts is roughly equivalent to 1 horsepower. Using this formula the popular Newport Vessels NV-Series 55lb Thrust Trolling Motor is rated as 624 watts at the highest forward speed and so 624/746 = 0.84 and would be roughly equivalent to a 0.84 horsepower motor.

## How many horsepower is 55 lbs of thrust?

If you’re getting the full 55 lbf of thrust at this speed, then your hull has 55 lbf total resistance at this speed. 55 lbf = 0.245 kN, so (0.245 kN)*(1 m/s) = 0.245 kNm/s = 0.245 kW. That’s about 1/3 hp.

## How many pounds of thrust is 5 horsepower?

A 3 hp outboard will blow a 50 pound thrust electric motor out of the water – I have both and can make that statement. I can hold the boat with the 3 hp running so it isn’t pushing a tremendous amount. A 5 hp probably has somewhere near or over 200 pounds of thrust.

## What size battery do I need for a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?

To use an example, a 55 lb thrust motor unit has a peak power draw of 40 amps. If you use the trolling motor for 6 hours at average 50% load of 20 amps, the trolling motor will then require a battery load of 120 Ah.

## How many amps does a 40 lb thrust trolling motor use?

40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.
