I have the Minnkota Riptide 80 on a 17 foot Mirage HPX. I use the hand driven version and have no trouble fly fishing from the bow. Suggest you need a Fly Tamer bucket or one of the mats to keep the line out of the motor. Used judiciously you can creep up on laid tarpon and tailing permit. In fact just in from creeping up successfully on some rolling junior tarpon in slick conditions.
