Sid. I fished alongside a yak with a smaller Minn Kota and he had total variable speed control just by rotating the tiller, so had no need for a PWM.

Another mate has same on a 55lb Watersnake on his tinny, so have you tried variation on the new motor yet mate.

Dogde, mate the unit i have has the i-pilot so no tiller handle as such , and instead of using the whole motor set-up [ie base bracket , i-plot control,and head unit] i,m currently thinking of setting my motor up with all the bits and pieces from Bassyaks.com
this puts the motor unit on the rear of my boat and the controller on the leg of the seat . If you have time check out bassyak.com there are some vid,s of a pa 12 [ and various other yaks ] with the set-up. i have a mate that has the 55lb attached to the bow of his pa 14 and the weight was an issue but he uses the remote
thanks for your reply dodge and look forward to more
