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.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month. Our quarterly print editions feature the best of the Monitor's coverage from the past few months with added photos, graphics, updates and the latest monitoring gear. If you don't have a print subscription, you can sign up for free. If you'd like to peruse some of our past editions, check out our print archive . In this edition, we showcase a number of projects that are truly advancing the way data are gathered in the environmental monitoring field. This includes a look at the first-ever deployment of the ESPniagara in Lake Erie, a device for real-time microcystin measurements that is so advanced its makers say it is essentially a robot.Read More
