So I've been planning on a 55lbs Ipilot TM on my FS17 create, but a mate seems to question just about anything but a 24v will function. I utilized a 45lbs on my latest skiff without having challenge, the FS17 will only be perhaps 200 lbs whole heavier, but will have far more windage owing to the better bow.
Detail is I truly don't want far more then two batteries on board. It's a smaller boat and area and body weight penalties all depend.
So for the 12v 55lbs I figured a team 29-31, and a team 24 for the outboard and every little thing else….
