Does anyone have suggestions for electric motor use on an inflatable pontoon boat?
What would be a good battery, other that a full size marine battery?

The cheapest (around $100) minn kota (manual, not electronic speed control)with a U1 deep discharge (around $60) battery like Academy carries. The light weight streamlined pontoons will be easy to push fast compared to a buster type boat or flat raft shape designs. If you will going a total of more than 45 minutes at full speed, then you may need a bigger, more expensive battery.

I have a sea eagle one man pontoon with a 40 lb. thrust trolling motor it moves through the water at a good clip. I use 2 small 45 amp batteries and can get 4 hr use per battery on low power. I have never run out of power. A 30 lb would work just as good.
