    After Torqeedo enter the small electric outboard a decade ago, I have always wondered why the trolling motor manf. haven’t responded. In the same way It’s curious Torqeedo hasn’t gone after the trolling motor market which in NA at least is the largest electric propulsion market. Maybe more players will spur some more innovation. Really it would just be nice if the trolling motor guys started offering units tuned better for things like Dinghy Propulsion.

    So it’s the Lowrance Ghost and the Garmin Force, and the details are out:

    There’s a whole lot I don’t know about trolling motors, but what I notice is that Lowrance is claiming big brushless motor features while Garmin is highlighting the “Sons of Fishes”
