I use a leaf blower on my boat. The engine is small, although a little loud, especially when submerging the blowing end in water to make the turns. The reason I use it instead of the trolling motor is that I have found it more useful in dead air. I can just blow in the sails and find that it moves the boat along rather nicely. It also works for cleanup in the cabin.
