Salt water is no friend of marine hardware, but the Minn Kota Riptide is built to handle it. Galvanic corrosion is controlled by the use of a sacrificial zinc anode, a system long used by gasoline outboards.
Premium marine grade alloys strengthen and a corrosion free composite shaft protect the rest of the motor. The electronic brain of the Riptide series is fully encapsulated in marine grade urethane to protect the sensitive electronic components. just $599
