You might have to lift it up while it’s on to get in close enough to the trailer to hook it up. I’ve done it before when my motor went out on me.
Not a big deal… Also a 50# thrust will shove that boat around really well. I have the same set up for the same application. I actually use this boat and trolling motor to power up to rock dams on the North Coon when the water is low. Then we just float back down to the ramp or pull out.

I would put on a good winch to help load. A problem I have had going too big on trolling motor on a small boat. Is it didn’t have a low enough speed for trolling slow. That left me constantly turning it off and on.
I have this problem on my 12′ boat. My 50lb thrust Minn Kota pushes it too fast even on the lowest setting. I have gotten used to having one hand on the controls at all times. On the other hand. It really pushes it at a good clip on the highest setting.HEUYParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 3:17 pmPost count: 553TeamAsgrowParticipantFebruary 28, 2018 at 5:11 pmPost count: 9152::

Wouldn’t a variable speed trolling motor be slow enough (like 1mph) and I was told electric trolling motors will normally max out speed at 4mph.
It really depends on the boat being pushed. In my case I back troll with my motor in the lowest reverse speed, that helps me move fairly slowly.
