Dom,
Preferably, you should get the biggest 12 volt TM possible. It's nice to have the power when you need it. With a 14' rowboat I used to own, I used a 17 lb Minn Kota and that did the job for me but I also had an outboard. So I really think all the 36lb and above TMs will work just fine. I definitely would get MK over Motorguide. The Maxxum is nice since it doesn't use as much juice. Hope it helps.

I'll sell you my minnkota trolling motor. It's a 12 volt. I forgot how many lbs of thrust. I used it whenever I rent a rowboat. I've used it 4 times in the last year. I'll sell it to your for $50.
