Here is my question.
Last fall I replaced the auto pilot 40# thrust on my lund with the MimKota V2 Powerdrive #70 as it finally shot craps so I took it into an authorized minKota repair shop and spent 209.00 dollars getting it repaired and only used it once then it gave up the Ghost for good and the repair shop said Bend over cause they only put a 60 day warranty on repairs,Sorta like a taillight Warranty deal as soon as they can't see the taillights on your car after you turn the corner the warranty is POOF,LOL
I miss the auto pilot and I was told that I could switch it to auto pilot if I wanted to and lose the foot control at a later date and it was an easy fix. Well I checked at Basser Pro and they have the kit and seems simple enough to me but the Kit costs $399.00 dollars,Sorta steep I'm thinking but I gave up the smokes 16 days ago and that saves me right at $250.00 a month so I'm thinking might as well reward myself after puffin on them suckers now for 50 years.
I'd like some imput on whether you think the Extra $399.00 dollars is worth the Bang for the buck ?? I plan on doing some Power Drifting this year for catfish instead of just letting the wind decide which way I should go,and sometimes there is little or no wind on the lakes as we all know.
Now one last Question I will be replacing all 3 batteries on the boat this spring as them baby's are 5 years old and getting week and don't hold a charge very good any more. What brand of batteries do you folks recommend that have held up good for you? I have in the past just used Deep Cycle Wally World Batteries,Thank You and looking forward to your guidance and sugestions.
