Fishing as a hobby is difficult to do alone, especially for certain actions such as following fish that swim in a pattern. Marine autopilots, though, have been developed for the lone fisherman's ease of use. With boat autopilots, boaters can program the boat to maintain its course without the need for manual steering. Here at Boatersland Marine, we carry self-steering gear from a number of well-known companies. Our selection includes the latest Simrad autopilots, Garmin autopilots and Raymarine Autopilots out on the market.
For those new to the concept of autopiloting for boats, it makes use of simpler engineering than autopiloting for planes. Where as aircraft autopilots were made to deal with the fatigue of piloting an aircraft for hours, marine autopilots were built more for maintaining a course or position on the water for the convenience of the boater, leaving the hands free for fishfinding, trolling and other activities. Modern boat autopilots have even been equipped with more intelligent technology that coordinates with chartplotters, wind data and other information-collecting systems.
Depending on what equipment you have already with you or what kind of piloting you need, Simrad autopilots and Garmin autopilots get the job done with a wide array of sophisticated equipment. Take a look through our selection today and find the right system to suit your needs.
