Finally bought my skiff, a used 16' clearwater with a tiller 30hp. However, it needs a trolling motor. I really like the Minn-Kota I-pilot (currently have one on my bay boat). But there seem to be several options added since my purchase 5 years ago. What TM and options would you suggest for a light 16' skiff and why?

I don't think you can go wrong with another I-Pilot. You could probably get away with the 12V 55 lbs. of thrust model. However, this is coming from someone with a 5 year old Minn Kota i-pilot as well lol. However, a friend has a brand new one and it is really nice. Seems quieter, spot lock works a little more accurately.

I like the Rhodan in LineX but they are expensive like Minn Kota. I only use my TM lightly so I would be tempted to use a small light TM on a small skiff such as a Newport. If you use your TM a lot, I would probably stick with MK.
