Minn Kota RT55-EM Engine Mount - Saltwater - Trolling Motor - 12V-55lb 
Engine Mount 55
EM Mounting Guide
- Cavitation plate must be at least 4.5” long and 6” wide to accommodate an Engine Mount motor.
- Cavitation plate to waterline should be 13” minimum.
EM Composite Mount
The EM discretely mounts on the cavitation plate of your outboard or I/O unit, with no stowing or deploying required. The mount is made for everyday operation with rugged reliability and superior corrosion resistance. The motor stays out of sight, won’t interfere with your I/O motor, keeps your deck clear and rides completely out of the water once you’re on plane.
Remote Speed Control
Control your EM’s speed with this 18' corded remote. It can be mounted or handheld, and offers infinitely variable speed control in forward and reverse. Features neutral (off) detent position. The motor can be steered using the boat’s steering wheel or outboard tiller.
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.
EM electronics are housed in a fully waterproof control module mounted below the deck of the boat, and they’re sealed in marine-grade polyurethane to provide corrosion-proof protection. The extruded aluminum housing features specially designed fins that dissipate heat to keep things cool under high rmp use.
Advanced Corrosion Protection
Riptide’s premium-grade alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor plating and a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint. With this many layers of protection, you are left with unequaled corrosion protection.
Cool, Quiet Power
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they’ll never hear you coming.
