    i am wanting to put a small trolling motor on my 14.2, and mount the battery in the storage area in the front. I do have a few questions. First, what size motor? i was thinking maybe a 40 lbs thrust. Also, what shaft length, most are 36, but some are 30 inches. THird, what size battery, i am in oklahoma and on fairly small lakes, so i was going to use the small size for little bass buggies, with a 46 minute reserve, mainly to keep weight down ( it is 23 lbs, most are 53 lbs) and last, what guage wire to use, i was thinking 8 or 10 guage, there is just a huge price diference between the two. Any help would be great.
