That boat is fine for a plate. Do you have an electric on it? If you do a kicker is not needed at all. Bob

You can always try trolling bags too. Tie one to each front cleet. Some people use 5 gallon buckets to do this too. I use my Minn Kota to troll slow enough for `eyes and if the wind is too bad to make this way effective i use a wind sock connected to a ski rope harness. I idle with the big motor, (Merc 150 EFI) and steer with the auto pilot on the Minn Kota. Works great.
