The GPS Seahorse™ Electric Kontiki with Autopilot
The GPS controlled Autopilot in the GPS Seahorse™ uses technology developed by the Team at Seahorse™ to give the user ultimate control over over the direction of their Seahorse™ Kontiki. Simply point it in the direction you wish it to travel in, and when ready, swipe the magnet over control, and the course is set and that's where it will go. Once launched, the GPS controlled autopilot will steer the GPS Seahorse™ along that course. If there is an side current, the autopilot will adjust and steer the Kontiki into the current, so the selected course is maintained. If a wave knocks the kontiki off course, then it will be steered back onto course.
This will allow the fisher to tackle large surf with the knowledge the GPS Seahorse™ will go straight out where they wanted. It's the same with the busy East Coast Beaches. The Fisher can confidently launch knowing their Seahorse™ will go where they pointed it. You will also be able to target specific areas of seabed to improve your catch.
Seahorse™ has used a unique patented combination of compass and GPS technology to make the most accurate Kontiki autopilot ever!!. It is the only one that will go where you point it. Based on the ever successful Seahorse™ Kontiki, and over 13 years of Kontiki production, the GPS Seahorse™ Kontiki has many improved features that help the GPS Seahorse™ preform better than ever.
The Steering System
The success of any autopilot system is based around the rudder. Following proven yacht design principles, Seahorse™ has developed a balanced, hydro-dynamic shaped rudder that will work in the rough and tumble of surf, where control is needed. The aerofoil shape of the rudder ensures it will work in the aerated water of the surf zone, compared to a flat metal plate rudder will struggle to work in these conditions.
The GPS Seahorse™ body has been designed to get the rudder and the motor as far forward as possible to ensure the best possible directional stability. Being forward, the rudder get maximum leverage on the pivot point, allowing a smaller rudder to be used, which helps to reduce drag, ensuring maximum distance.
The Large Hatch
The hatch on the GPS Seahorse™ Kontiki is larger than on the existing STD Seahorse™ Kontiki. This allows easy fitting and removal of the batteries, as it is now possible to put your hand into the Kontiki and hold the batteries as you insert or remove them. The access hole has a higher lip, with a bull nose ridge that holds the hatch seal in place. The newly designed hatch spider has three fingers to allow better and quicker fitting of the hatch.
This hatch is user friendly, easy to use and the most secure and best sealing hatch on the market.
