Will this be enough thrust to stay on a spot with a bass tracker 16ft boat?

I think there $800 which is affordable

Anyone have one?

12v will be done before noon in a 12 mph wind on open water.

Just carry an extra battery and it will be an all day affair if you go hide form the wind some.

Who has them for $800?

Motorguide xi5 in 55lb thrust will run you around $1200 usually

Minn Kota Powerdrive 55lb thrust with i pilot will run you around $1100.

I would recommend getting a good AGM battery for it as well and it will work just fine on your boat.
