I used a cheap $100 trolling motor on my hard shell dingy for a while as an experiment, and an alternative to mounting my heavy ass 25 HP to go on very short trips. I found I could row faster than the motor would push me and the trolling motor lost its place on the boat.

On the northern Gulf of Mexico.
