Minn kota

Post by juddy »

Hey guys,
Just after some advice on where i can get a good deal on a new 80lb minn kota,if anyone has bought one lately
Im currently waiting for new boat to be finished :D and now gotta upgrade to the bigger minn kota,
Looking at the 80lb one with the 60 inch shaft, and also what batteries would be best suited to use with it, they will be seperate to the engine batteries.

Cheers

Looking into the same thing for mine.........IO Marine will do one for $2450 and BCF $2400........still waiting for BIAS to call back.......Recommend spending the extra $$$$ for a couple of 150ah batteries

IO marine will beat any price, well they did with mine!
I brought a couple of dual purpose American batteries - 100amph. Have not run them flat yet. Held me on anchor in the blue water for 7 odds hours. They are pricy… but well worth it.

I bought my 100Ahr batts from battery- world August 2011, matched with a CTEK 24v charger they run great.Cost $400 for two and $380 for charger
Just charge em up a day before I head out and they have not run down yet.
Mine is the Copilot not ipilot so I have no Anchor spotlock to cant comment on that
Cheers
