    Default Working on it

    I am hooking one up to the kicker on my Sea Sport. It is made by MAGMA Mfg. in Idaho. I already had the controller and had them send me the servo that bolts to the motor.

    They respond the same day to emails and have answered my questions clearly and seem like a good outfit.
    I can't wait to try it out. I did the EZ Steer earlier and now have that dialed in. I'll be ready for the Winter King Derby next year.

    I'll be sure to let you know. I am going to throw some shrimp pots out one of these days and try it out trolling for kings in the sound.

    good thing i emailed them before i went out a bought a 4 hp merc and just read the parts list from the web site!!......after a few emails back and forth, the guy said.,oh- only works with external tanks..seems the servos wont fit in engines that have the internal gas tank in them.,,,but otherwise, they were very helpful....thanks again!..larry
