Minn kota?

My new little tub needs a motor (so says my wife) and for the inland lakes around here I thought a 40-50lb thrust MinnKota would problaby push my boat around if there is no wind (disp 1800 pounds), probably creep along but I really dont plan on using it much. 45w solar to keep the battery charged is what I am thinking.

I would just stick a 4-10hp on the existing mount, but I would really rather not fiddle with the gas unless we end up heading out to monterey bay or something.

Would this work?
