Electric trolling motor for exped boat.

I'm interested in mounting an electric trolling motor to my cat. I don't want to move it for long distances but for when I want to correct it's direction easily while fishing. Considering a 16' expedition cat loaded for 5-8 days. I was thinking 30lbs thrust to conserve battery life, but I'm not sure that will work for that big of a boat, but at the same time my 16' Jacks moved surprisingly easy. Has anyone done this? Input? Thanks

I have ran mine with 40lb thrust. It moves along good. A fellow I saw built a fixed rudder for his cat because with out a keel you have to fight them a little
If you start off asking for help, you probably should not even start off.
