How far and how fast do you want to go? I replaced a 2 cycle outboard with an electric and am very happy. It's quiet, no more carrying gas, and no mixing of the fuel.

I can go about 10 kts in a Livingston w/55lbs. of thrust. If I want to go far, I take a 2nd battery, but have never used it.
As others said, know what weight you're going to lift before installing davits.
