I fish by myself quite frequently and that is why I originally bought the system. When it is too rough to go over the bar, I can sit inside the jaws and the Unit keeps me off the rocks while landing a fish. Not sure if you do any river fishing, but it will allow you to back troll plugs down through a hole nice and slow in heavy current (like on the Columbia or the Willamette). when you have a bunch of newbies in your boat, it maintains control while you give directions and net their fish.
If you want to maintain a position in heavy current, while fishing for sea bass or Lingcod, it works exceptionally well. You never think you need one until you fish on a boat that is equip'd with one...

I have a TR-1 auto pilot on my Trolling motor. It is simply the best trolling setup available. You can hook it up to your GPS plot a course along a reef or whatever. The remote gives you control while out on the fish deck. You can set your speed, course etc.. It does not work on your main, but they make a model that does. You can also back troll in swift river water, something that is almost impossible if you are by yourself. Garmin makes it now although I got mine from the original maker.

This setup would actually allow me to go solo at times, I will really have to consider this. The remote option would be needed for how I fish. Thanks for the input!

I have a bad back, so it is not comfortable for me to steer the trolling motor from the tiller. Salmon trolling is anywhere from 1.5 up to 3.5. Tuna trolling is off the main.

Our tuna troll is 6 - 7 like yours, but most salmon trolling is 3-4, with some people trying to go even slower.  I think the tiller for the salmon will be great unless its a crummy day, then I'll tie the kicker to the main and sit in the cabin.

whats the trolling speed for salmon?    Id be inclined to steer from the tiller.  Its fun unless you need to program a course.   We cant troll witht he kicker as its 4 kts easy and 5 kts wot and we troll for tuna at 6.5- 7.5 kts

Well I got the first 4 pieces of shelves cut out tonight, glued them up over the weekend and placed them in a heated shed to cure.  I did make them out of grade #1 doug fir, planed to 1 1/8.  They did not warp at least not yet, both clamped together and clamped to a bench right now.
A couple of knots are not in the best location, tight knots just little bigger than I would like.
I plan to cap the underside with 1/2" marine plywood and cap the top like Renn says but probably with 1/2".

I will be going a full 2x6 width on the back parts of the shelves behind the pilot house and plan to trim the inside edge with some white oak.

I also glued up my bow stem this weekend out of 4 pieces of 1" thick pieces of  knot free white oak, got a 3 1/4 x 4 laminated piece 54" long at this time.
