I have just modified a MinnKota 30lb thrust for my Hobie PA. Mounted on the stern, looks and works great. One thing I have learned about trolling motors is the shaft that runs to the motor is not sealed and water will go down the shaft and ruin the motor. So take the head off the motor and seal the shaft with silicone. If you never expect to turn your yak over then you don't have a problem.
