"Pond and Pools" is more like it. I wouldn't trust that thing in anything that does more than ripple.

But it has a ping pong table built in.

Five speeds forward? Three speeds reverse?

In the Victorian era, this would be described as a "whimsy".

Ah ha. Shows how little I know of trolling motors. Are they just notches for standard rheostat settings or are they actually different gears?

notches... more like detentes. The end of the tiller rotates, one way for forward t'other for reverse.

Thank you. This place is a font of knowledge about things I'd never otherwise think of but, like the African versus European swallow, may prove essential some day.

One note more... some are foot controlled... usually the larger 24 volt varieties that hang of the end of the bass boats. I am not familiar with those but I expect they are infinitely adjustable and able to be locked at a certain speed. I believe you can also control depth, direction, tilt etc, all with your foot. They have some oomph too.
