Default 36V Trolling Motor VS Kicker

In the process of deciding which boat I am going to pick up, most likely a parker 2320 or a 23' center console. Both would be powered by a single outboard. I will be doing a lot of trips offshore and some trolling for yellowfin ect in So Cal. I want to put some type of trolling motor on to keep the hours down on the outboard and have the ability to get me out of a bad situation if it were to arise. Can a 36V trolling motor really troll a 23ft boat 6 mph? Here's the pros and cons of what I have found so far...

Kicker
Pro's
Plenty of power to troll the boat 5-6 mph
Can be pull started if batteries are dead and help recharge other batteries

Cons
No sea anchor function

36V Troller (bow mounted)
Pros
Sea Anchor/GPS lock and jog

Cons
3 extra batteries
