I am thinking about buying a Aire Leopard 18ft Cataraft.
I have a 24ft fishing boat that weights about 7000lbs.
On this boat I have a 10hp Yamaha High Thrust trolling motor.
It will move my boat at maximum speed of 5-6 knts.
Would this type of motor move a loaded Leopard raft against a river current?
If not what hp motor would you use?
I am told a jet drive is not advised for a Cataraft.
