Adding Trolling Motor to Swim Plateform

Last One

Recommended Posts

We have a 24' Thompson with a swim plate form and want to add a kicker.

Few Questions 1. What size kicker 2. Would love to see pictures of a kicker added to a swim platform, not sure how to build the bracket

3. What is the best auto pilot and throttle control? This site has always been great with sharing information.

Might be helpful if you posted a picture of the back of your boat and the swim platform.  Some swim platforms will carry a kicker others will not.  A 9.9 kicker should be all you need (100 to 120lbs).  Auto pilot choices vary depending on what type of steering your main motor has and whether you want tied to kicker or a stand alone kicker system.  More info will get more help for you.
