ok, i know...paddling.net is the name and i'm posting the cardinal sin, but i have congestive heart failure. i was on the lake fishing one day and it was before i had the motor. i used a kayak paddle to get around and still do, but going back to the landing i got caught in a wind, head on and i had to work far more to get back than i wanted or needed to. so, i bought a minn kota trolling motor...it was also a good idea in case i had heart trouble i can get back quicker. i just wondered if anyone else had a motorized canoe and what motor you use. the electric is ok but my range is limited to battery use. a small 2 horse would be nice but i wondered about the weight...pros and cons...anyone?
