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 protects the rest of the motor. The electronic brain of the Riptide series is fully encapsulated in marine-grade urethane to protect sensitive electronic components.

**Coast Guard requirements dictate that each ungrounded current-carrying conductor must be protected by a manually reset, trip-free circuit breaker or fuse.
