  1. OK2,

     I am in the process of rebuilding a 221V Islander, and part of the rework is to move about 200#’s forward. I am doing it through battery and anchor chain. I would suggest that if you were interested in knowing how your particular boat would handle, perhaps a little test with some ballast might help you decide whether or not you would benefit from a more permanent change. I also intend on adding trim tabs to help balance the ride. 


  2. Couple initial questions if I may...


    1.)  Is the recommendation to go with SeaStar helm pump and cylinder tee'd into an Autpilot pump and use the OEM hydraulics as a power assisted slave cylinder with main power on?


    2.) What negative effect is there in AP mode with the main power off and trolling with kicker? 


    3.) Is there any safety concerns operating in AP with the Main and needing to manually take control? 

  3. IDK: Being new to this type of fishing and trying to absorb as much knowledge as I could by reading as much as I could, I found I was starting to develop brain swell... For me, I took an opportunity to visit a descent tackle shop that had most of the brands and after really putting my hands on each of them, the instant comparison of cost, features and construction made my decision much easier.
