Hi, I'm a nooby here

I'm a former sunfish owner and recently purchased a Cat 14.2. I've seen a few posts about motors. Small gas or electric ? Pros and cons?

Hi! I purchased a Lehr 2.5 last year. Pricey but convenient as it runs on propane tanks that fit right by the engine thus don't have to worry about a tank lying around the cockpit. It does not come in a long shaft though thus does really get the optimum depth if I'm not siting in the rear to sink it lower. It's very light though. Does the job
I use an electric trolling motor with a wheel chair type battery. I tie the battery off to the hiking strap hardware at the transom so it won't go overboard when I capsize.
