Power trip
I have a colorado xt with a 36 lb thrust newport trolling motor. I estimate my boat weighs 300 lbs ish fully loaded including me.

I feel seriously underpowered. I realize I am not going to pull any water skiiers, but a little cooling breeze would be nice. Boat will barely make headway against current or tide (always a factor here in coastal Carolina)

I have considered getting a larger trolling motor or adding a second 36 for duel power. I have access to a 7 hp 4 stroke ( weighs 56 lbs) but I am wondering is that total overkill or at least too heavy?
