I'm not intenting this to be a smart alex remark, but aren't the oars the perfect auxiliary mode of propulsion? I wish my 12' Beetle Cat was equipped with oars, but since it's not I outfitted it with a 36 lb. thrust Minnkota trolling motor which is plenty for that 400 lb boat. Make sure you pick the shaft length appropriate for the transom. A group 24 deep cycle battery weighs 54 lbs should last all day if not used at full power.
