That's a lightweight boat, and a conventional outboard may trim you far down by the stern. Maybe an electric trolling motor?

Running lights--bring a battery-type red/green, and you can McGuyver a flashlight into a stern light with plastic wrap shaped as a mini-dome, taped on to the bezel, you can tape it on top of the tillerhead. Or two of 'em if you want a 'steaming' light too. Always bring duct tape or the clear tape that's similar, and you can tape down your lights.
