Bump, anybody have one of these on their boat? If so what are your thoughts on it and what is your boat length?

Use the search function ;-) Also a good bit of very good reviews over on the Florida Sportsman website.
If the TM was a 36V, I'd be all over one. My boat will be too heavy for this particular TM.

I have had one for three years on a SeaArk 24 foot aluminum boat, I use it mainly on the Ohio and Mississippi River it is awesome quit using anchor as it will hold us in the heavy current I switched over this year to two Sears Platinum batteries and have not drawn it down at all, I used it two weeks ago on the Ohio in 2 mile mph current and it held the boat in place all day with no issues.

For an older guy this is the answer no more pulling the anchor from spot to spot, if your not in the correct position it can be adjusted in five foot increments forward, backwards or left to right.

When I use it on the Big Miss I just put the main engine in forward and allow the Rhodhan to control the boat, the motor is idling in forward gear and the trolling motor controls it but we are talking 5-6 mph current also..........Doc

Rhodan doesn't need a 36 volt motor. In tests their 24 volt 80# thrust preformed close to the same output of the Minn Kota 36 volt 101# thrust trolling motor. All on two batteries versus three batteries.

Wow, that may be worth the extra cash spent on the Rhodan versus the MG and the MK.
