auxiliary/kicke trolling motor on power cat
 
Anyone have any experience on adding a auxiliary/kicker motor to a power cat for slow trolling? I would like to use the 8hp Yamaha high thrust or any other 4 stroke up to 15hp for this task. Of coarse it would be a long shaft and if available a added Bay kit to make it a super long shaft.

I am looking to purchase a used 22-26ft power cat.

I have experience trolling a 27' mono with twin 150's and it just does not get down slow enough......my target speed is 1.2-1.8 MPH

Also the response time for steering in close quarters using the mains is sluggish at best.

Thanks
