Garmin Reactor autopilot with Smartpump on a Hewescraft 210 Searunner 225 Honda with 9.9 Honda kicker.

Autopilot steers 225 which is connected to 9.9 with tie bar. Troll with 9.9 95% of the time.

Troll patterns( zig/zag, circles etc..)

Grady White 232 Gulfstream with twin 150 Yamahas. Lowrance outboard pilot. Trolls great in anything under 5 foot waves. Struggles going into big waves, but works fine going with them. The lazy S turns have caught me lots of fish on tough days, and the circle back has helped me recover lost tackle.

Kind of autopilot. Have a 19’ stripper with 150 hp and 8t hp Yamaha. I also have a Minnkota Ulterra with ipilot I use for autopilot. The 8 hp pushes the boat and the minnkota steers the boat with a remote or through my Humminbird helix. Can pick a heading , follow depth contours or select waypoints and off we go. Works great plus it has an anchor feature too.

just depends how big your boat is , but they did just come out with a 87” shaft for larger boats.
