Please advise on the best option for putting a kicker or trolling motor on a 1996 Dauntless/Ventura.
Purpose - trolling for Walleye in great lakes area. I was thinking about the Yamaha T8 but is it too heavy and cause issues with plaining?
Can a 100# trust electric on the transom move it along in a wind?
What kicker/trolling motor brackets are the best?

I have the same boat as you with a 200hp Yamaha 2 stroke. I put a 9.9 hp Yamaha high thrust 4 stroke on as a kicker. It will move the boat at about 6 knots. I have no problems planing. The only problem I have had is the bracket on the engine cracked in half and had to be replaced. It was very thick aluminum too. Good luck.
