    Dave, we are using the motorguide 82lb thrust 24volt hand control. Just got it this year and have had good luck so far, it seems to do alright for our 20ft boat. It's made the drifting a little easier, the 55lb thrust that we had before was just not stout enough.

    That's the size we were looking at since adding another battery would be difficult. I didn't know if it would be big enough, though. The 36V models put out just over 100 lb of thrust.

    Anyone else? Don't be shy...
