I’m torn with knowing you’re probably right and I ultimately will go that route but for now I’m going to walk before I run.In my opinion, just go with a Garmin kicker autopilot
I went through the same progression of half measures (tie bars, then tie bars plus trollmaster, etc), then finally bit the bullet and got the Garmin.
- no need for disconnecting every time you make a run
- throttle control is way more sensitive/adjustable than the trollmaster (in my experience)
- steering from the remote has been life changing, the captain is no longer imprisoned at the helm or stern.
Thank you for your experience. You can say “ I told ya” later…🤣
