If you own a Minn Kota iPilot you can't use a Humminbird 360 on that trolling motor without one of these brackets that allows the 360 to slide up and down on the shaft of the trolling motor when you're taking it in and out of the water.

I bought this from CumberlandCrappie.com

Go to their website and watch the video of this thing working on the Ulterra so you will know how it works.

I ordered mine and when it came in I was talking to the owner of the company about some installation questions. He told me he had just come out with a newer version and he sent me the new one too so I have both of them.

The original version is a heavy duty metal pipe that the 360 shaft slides up in to protect it and also allows it to slide up and down through a custom bracket. You'll have to look at the video to understand.

The new version is a very light-weight fiberglass pipe instead of metal. The owner was trying to reduce weight of the overall system so the Ulterra wouldn't have to lift as much.

Anyway, I have one of the metal ones and one of the fiberglass ones.

In the pics below, I'm not 100% certain I had the roller part mounted correctly. It may need to be flipped around where it is pointing down closer to the foot of the trolling motor. Other than that, the pics show it pretty well.

I can't remember the exact amount, but I paid well over $200 for it when I bought it.

I will sell these for $100 each.

I am in College Station, TX.

Cell number is 979-595-8410.

The pics show the fiberglass shaft installed on my boat. I took it off before ever using it. I wanted the metal version because I thought it would maybe protect the shaft of the 360 better against stumps, etc. Looking back, I don't think it would have mattered and the fiberglass one is lighter so when you are stowing and deploying the iPilot the fiberglass may be better. They both have their advantages in my opionion.

The fiberglass one has a different bracket system too. Notice in the pics below that the fiberglass pipe goes through a bracket with rollers. The metal version is different in that the metal pipe slides through a slightly larger section of metal pipe. I can text pics of the metal one if you want. It's already off my boat and loose.
