The Minn Kota E-Drive Electric Outboard is perfect for lakes with gasoline restrictions.
The quiet 2-hp power plant will move a full-size pontoon boat up to 5 mph with no fumes, no emissions and no messy gasoline. E-Drive can run up to 2 hours at 100% on a single charge, and features a special tilt-lock mechanism for safe and secure trailering. Our bolt-on transom model connects directly to your boat's standard cable linkage, while the clamp-on mount utilizes Tilt Tiller control.
Electronic Throttle Control
Get fingertip control from this ultra-responsive throttle lever, which has forward/neutral/reverse positions and push-button tilt up/down. It mounts either on the binnacle or side mount at the cockpit, and features a key switch for added safety.
Bolt-on Transom Mount
Our standard E-Drive motor features a bolt-on transom bracket. The bracket includes a power tilt mechanism and a built-in breakaway mount that protects the motor from underwater hazards.
Dash-mounted tilt gauge provides an instant readout of motor position.
Minn Kota Actuators
E-Drive models are powered by intelligently designed actuators with 12V DC motors. They operate smoothly, quietly and dependably, and also feature the industry's highest IP68 waterproof rating.
Realtime Battery Gauge
Instantly see how many hours of runtime you have left on your battery with this realtime, back-lit gauge. It also features a fuel gauge showing battery condition, as well as throttle power level.
Stainless Steel Prop
A special sheer pin protects this stainless steel prop from damage when encountering underwater obstacles. The prop also features a replaceable, hub-mounted zinc anode to fight galvanic corrosion.
Digital Maximizer™ controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge.
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.

Having just wrapped up its ninth year, the Boise River Watershed Watch program is an increasingly popular citizen science program in Boise, Idaho. It takes interested volunteers and joins them with expert scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) who teach them about the river’s health and sampling water quality using transparency tubes, dip nets and chemical test kits. “Our focus is to educate folks on the parameters that we measure, to give them an idea of the river’s health,” said Tim Merrick, public information officer at the USGS’ Idaho Water Science Center. “So they can collect data on the river’s conditions and get plugged in.Read More
Researchers from Scripps Institution of Oceanography at the University of California - San Diego have designed and built a diver-operated underwater microscope to study millimeter-scale processes as they naturally occur on the seafloor. The research team has observed coral turf wars, coral polyp “kissing” and much more using the new microscopic technology. Many important biological processes in the ocean take place at microscopic scales, but when scientists remove organisms from their native habitats to study them in the lab, much of the information and its context are lost. In a quest to overcome this challenge, Scripps oceanographers developed the new type of underwater microscope to image marine microorganisms in their natural settings without disturbing them.Read More
Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
