    I have a 1436 jon boat right now and i am turning it into a little pan fishing boat that i can do some serious bream and a little bass fishing out of it i am in the process of adding a casting deck and so on. I have found a Minn Kota 54 inch shaft 48 pound thrust foot controlled trolling motor with auto piliot on it for 150 dollers and i was wondering if this was a good buy and if the 54 inch shaft will be too much for the boat i mean i can move it up and down if need be but just seeing if this would be ideal for my little jon

    if you have room for it to store on not hinder your fishn it should work fine like u said u can adjust it up to depth u need for your boat just watch out for low limbs & bridges,sounds like a good deal to me
