Well I recently bought a 17ft sea swirl center console that I am really enjoying. Now I think I really want one of the fancy salt water minn kota bow mount motors. The one i am considering is riptide 80 ST w/I-Pilot. They are expensive, but features like spot lock (hold boat in current/wind in place) sound really cool. Anyone have one of these that can tell me how it works for fishing the sound? Thanks.
