Wanted Info. on auto pilot for alumkinum boat


Recommended Posts

Im sure there is a place for a true auto pilot but I use a minn kota ipilot to steer my 1950 Lund tyee and love it. I have an 8hp kicker that I run at the same time.   I wish I had the ulterra for the auto deploy feature when I want to bow cover the front. It really isn’t too much of an inconvenience as I don’t have a bow cover 95% of the time. The auto pilot works well, nice to have controls on a lanyard and even use the “track” feature once in a while.  Good luck.

If you have the Minnkota I pilot link you can also use the follow the contour feature to keep the boat tracking at the exact depth you want. I get my kicker up to 1.8ish then run my Terrova on 4. Have my kicker on my trolling motor batteries so it charges them while running. Works well. No problems.
