How much Thrust? Boat weight is key when determining how much thrust you need. General rule of thumb: you need at least 2 lbs. of thrust for every 100 lbs. of fully-loaded boat weight (people and gear included). If things like wind or current are major factors where you fish, youíll want a little extra thrust.

i-Pilot Link is compatible with Ulterra, Terrova, PowerDrive V2, Pontoon, Riptide ST and Riptide SP bow-mount trolling motors, and most Ethernet-equipped Humminbird fishfinder units.
