I live in south florida and have many friends who have trolling motors. The salt is extreemly hard on trolling motors. We ( about 4 of us) who flats fish , after trying many different trolling motors,have all purchased the older series Jhonson trolling motors. I have a friend who has one from the late sixties or early seventies that he is still using. We have all been able to purchase used ones or NOS stock from the 1990s with the exception of the really old trolling motor I spoke of previously,(a gift from a relative) I have the BHL4TS 12/24 bowmount hand control. It has 56 lbs of thrust. If you dont want to throw away your money go with an old Jhonson Evinrude about $600.00 for New Old Stock. Here is a website that has them http://www.boatconection.com/evin.htm
