What size trolling motor?


The family is thinking about getting my father-in-law a trolling motor for his new to him boat. It's a 20' Pathfinder. I've been tasked with doing the research and I don't know jack about what I should get. Can someone tell me what pound thrust he would need at a minimum and possibly what something like this will cost? It will be used strictly for inshore fishing. Mostly in the upper Wando area.

What size trolling motor would I need for a Tidewater 180CC ? I'm guessing 80lb thrust, 24 volt and 60" shaft but I'm just guessing.
Thanks ,

When you see "Old Glory" waving in the breeze, know that it is the dying breaths of our fallen hero's that makes it wave.

Wow, it's been 8 years since I've posted to this forum. Sadly, I'm not any better at fishing lol.

If you brought the boat to us for an install we would sell you an 80# thrust with a 60" shaft I-pilot.
