I have a 15' aluminum boat that im considering taking on Lake Huron sometimes. Obviously only on calm days, and within 2-3 miles of shore. My thought is that id like a back up motor just in case my main conks out... I don't want to have to paddle all the way back in! However, I REALLY don't like the looks of a kicker permanently hanging off the stern. Im thinking that a small kicker could be strapped in under my bow deck and only be pulled out if needed, then clamped on and hooked up to my main fuel tanks. Does this sound feasible? I was thinking of a light motor like 3.5-5 hp should do the trick. Thoughts?
