SeaFever, I couldn't find any specs for that motor other than the max thrust. My concern is that a trolling motor, (designed typically for aluminum fishing boats) wouldn't provide enough thrust for a long enough time to be practical.
Although a LOT more expensive, I was looking at the new Torqeedo 1003. At about 30 pounds with it's integrated battery, it seems a lot more effective and convenient than the Minn Kota. However, the Minn Kota is a lot cheaper.
