What size motor would be best (or do you have) for ...
I have a 24 venture (1800#) ? I use a 34lb trolling motor to get out of the cove ¼ mile about 2knots speed . I have a 1971 clinton 7HP that really pushes it around . I plan on going to the coast and sailing in the sounds and to the outerbanks of NC . I was not sure about the durability of the clinton so I bought a new Briggs and Stratton 5 hp 4 stroke . It pushes the boat around as well as the clinton 7 , and being 4 stroke ,is cleaner to the water .
