Re: trolling motor

Your in luck, since you will be on a lake in freshwater. You have a lot of choices and fresh water motors cost much less too. Since you will be using it for a short run I would not worry too much about battery capacity. You do need to consider will you have enough thrust on the prop to get you home to the dock if it is windy at the end of your sailing day. The wind on a hull with no sails up is a considerable force to overcome. I'd get at least a 45-55 motor for sure. Look at the Endura Series motors, they have two shaft lengths available as well.
Good luck,Bruce
