    I have a friend that has a genisis thats been sitting in his garage for about three years.He said he had a problem with it not deploying right,and said he'd make me a deal on it. I told him I would take it somewhere and have it looked at and if it wasn't too much I would buy it. Are these a dependable unit? should I stick with a regular auto pilot?

    The MK Genesis was discontinued by MK about 2 years ago. Not sure if they just weren't selling enough or there was some inherent problems with their design. They were very expensive units, but I still see many guys out there have them and continue to use them. I always wanted one, just couldn't justify the expense.

    Best place to contact is Boat Things - 614-895-2628. I can't remember the eact address but it's on the West side of Hoover reservoir. (He works out of his garage.) He's a trolling motor specialist and deals with basically all brands. Good guy, very knowledgeable, many folks on here can vouch for him. Maybe one will chime in with the address. Or better yet just give him a call.
