I'm in trolling motor ****.
this is what I need
1. "remote" control of the trolling motor - my fiancee can't use her legs very well, so it would near impossible for the foot pedal thing to work.
2. would like 12V, but may be able to do 24V depending on my measurements tomorrow
3. have enough power to push an Aluminum 16' deep v with 4 people in it and gear and stuff.
4. boat use will be mostly on motor restricted lakes (either 10hp or trolling motor only
I know these aren't the best needs in the world, but it is what I have so far. I will be doing some measuring, etc tomorrow evening to see what shaft length, etc I will need to make everything work ok.
I really like the idea of the Minn Kota CoPilot for the Terrova series of motors : http://www.minnkotamotors.com/products/ ... lotterrova
or the Motor Guide Wireless series : http://sites.mercurymarine.com/portal/p ... ema=PORTAL
like i said above, my fiancee has extremely limited use of her legs so this is my main concern. I don't want her to get frustrated or upset because she has to be hands on with the trolling motor all the time. Much rather have me catching all fish upset her instead
any and all advice would be greatly appreciated.
