EM Mounting Guide
Please use the diagram to find the Engine Mount that is right for your boat.
Minimum clearance is required from spine of outboard to end of cavitation
- 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
Advanced Corrosion Protection: Riptide's premium-grade
alloys are fortified by a multi-step cleaning process, tough-as-nails armor
plating & a durable, saltwater-resistant powder coat paint. With layers of
protection, the elements are truly protected.
Fully Encapsulated Electronics: Marine-grade urethane fully
encapsulates Riptide control boards to protect the electronic circuitry. All
electrical connections are sealed with waterproof heat-shrink tubing to keep
Sacrificial Anode: We use metals that are properly balanced
& a composite shaft to ward off galvanic corrosion. So the only piece left for
saltwater to attack is this little zinc anode, which absorbs corrosion so the
rest of the motor doesn't have to.
Weedless Wedge 2 Prop
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping
and hacking. Weedless Wedge 2 features swept-back, flared blades for
unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
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
This motor is backed up with Minn Kota’s two-year warranty.
