If so, how do you control it when trolling?
Hi Jimbalaya Jones,

I bought a 9.9 Yamaha kicker xlong shaft, remote electric steering, remote binnacle for throttle, tilt, start/stop. I opted for this because I think it will be great for trolling but also because it will do double duty as a backup in case main engine breaks down (knock wood). I have not started the installation just yet but will do so in the next couple months while Invictus is on the hard. I will post some photos and would be happy to share them with anyone interested.

Peter

Greetings,
Would one have to lock down the main prop to prevent free wheeling whilst trolling with the kicker?

I think you have made a good decision. On my last 23' Aquasport Walkaround I mounted a 15 HP Yamaha as shown below. I already had the engine, with long shaft, and it worked really well. I just tilted it, set the speed and used my main engine for steering control. Made the bracket out of 1/4 stainless plate, real simple. I could get down to about 1.2 knots and up to about 7. Send some fish pictures to. Good luck and Happy New Year.

Hi Peter,

Just replying to your offer to share pictures (and possibly he story) of mounting your 9.9 to the swim grid om Invictus when you have her out; would love to see them. I bought a Garlick 15" throw kicker bracket for Tortuga to mount my 9.9, but returned it when I found it wouldn't work - would have to be low on he transom. Next option is mounted directly on swim grid as you suggest.

Hi Tatlayoko - I came across your post while looking for more information on a similar problem we have with our Grandbanks 32 (120 HP For Lehman). It doesnt go slow enough to troll for salmon using downriggers. I am EAGER to hear how your experience has been with the 9.9 kicker. Did it solve your problem? What was the cost in the end? Is it easy to use with the remote control? What would you have done different?

Thank you and I really appreciate the help. Please post some pics!

I dunno what you're doing wrong - but we troll with dodgers & live herring at 600rpm in/out of gear (2kts). Otherwise we use our downriggers (BigJon elect w/10-12# ball) and Black's releases at 5kts without any problems - using J-plugs. If you have paravanes they can be used like outriggers w/two or three releases on each side.
