I use either my Yamaha 2hp gas motor or my Minn-Kota 36lb thrust electric trolling motor. In either case I put the battery in the bow to better balance the craft when alone.
It was an awesome canoe to have for a trip I did with a friend in the Upper Peninsula of MI. It was a paddle in (about a half mile on a lake) and set up camp deal. The wide beam afforded us plenty of gear stowage, but we wound up having to tow his kayak with more gear stuffed in it! Didn't pack as light as we thought!
In short, it's a great little one person fishing boat for sheltered waters but really fails at traditional paddle methods. It really begs for a electric motor or at least a yak paddle.
