I have this little 12 footer aluminum boat all patched up, to go fishign in the local (small) rivers around here. Already have an electric trolling motor that works but is a mystery to me what size. I would like to put a small gas powered out board on if poss. but there's a few considerations. Size, I'm thinking no more than 4 hp, and there's a dandy looking 2 hp at a buddies for sale if he gets to fixing it. There's me and the two kids (complete with the fresh water flak jackets) some light fishing gear and probably lunch. We're coming close to capacity for weight with the trolling motor and battery, to add a gasser, so I'm thinking its either or. Rowing is an option, we're in no rush, but I'd like the power if it's worth the bother. Which would you add, the electric or a small gas?
