Got the pontoon ready. made a few changes. Opened the front up to make fishing easier. Added power anchors front and rear. changed the seating a bit. Added remote control trolling motor and new graphs.
I just installed a Motorguide Xi5 on my pontoon last week. I have been amazed at how it will hold the boat ON THE SPOT while fishing brush piles in any wind I should be out in. I'm still learning how to use the control (understatement) and I have a few issues in my setup to fix but overall it is great. No interference on my graph. (be sure to get a 60 amp circuit breaker) Also be sure your plug fits in tight. If you get even a slight power interruption the unit shuts down and has to reset the GPS.
It's pretty neat to put the boat upwind of the pile and fish out the back end with the wind at your back. The feature that allows you to push one button and move the boat 5' forward or back or to either side is cool.
Trollers should love this motor. (Even Guy kind of liked it)
