    I have a 60 on my Tracker. It was what was available at the time. From the looks of the boat I would thnk a 54 would be good. Could always look and see what the spec sheet on a new boat says is on there

    My 21 Tracker 175TF, I put the 54" Terrova on mine. That is what the recommended length was from Ralph Stokely.

    54 is plenty. I have a 54" on a deep v with a much higher bow than that and I have never lowered it all the way.

    Length depends on what kind of trolling you do.....if you pull crankbaits on big water and there is a good chop on it you will need one longer .... when your at the back of the boat reeling in and taking fish off ... if short shat the front of your boat is pitching up and down....your trolling motor will cavitate and will be hard to maintain even constant speed. With the 60 inch you just let it on down and troll on no problem.
    I have spent most my life fishing........the rest I wasted.

    I am with G crappie being a mostly deep water fish. You can sink the extra lenght of the trolling motor down into the water. In my case I leave a good portion above the deck. It does make it easier to tip the Terrova back into the boat
