Hey, i just bought an old town saranac 146 canoe. I also got a minn kota endura max 40lb thrust trolling motor to mount on the canoe. I am not sure which battery would be best(around $100) i am thinking about getting the everstart maxx 29 dc. Does anyone have suggestions on batteries they have used with a similar set up and how much usage/time you get out of a battery? I have seen many ways to mount the motor I am thinking one that basically clamps a 2x4 to the 2-3" lip on the side(which is very sturdy feeling). Can anyone suggest any specific way to mount or not to mount? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Yes, a 27 would work. So would an 8D! But why would you want to put such a heavy battery in an easily-driven canoe, just to run a trolling motor?

Used to hate digging those 8ds out of the bilge, I swear I think they were put in then the deck went on.

Me, too, boocat!. My twin diesel motor yacht had three of them, and they were in corners of the engine room, with no hatch above. They had to be muscled over the transmissions, and one around the front of one engine, to the hatch in the center. Then straight up, deadlift. Arrggghhh! I'm waaayyy too old for that now. TexasJim
