I purchased this motor for my squareback Coleman Scanoe 14. I'm powering the motor with an EverStart Maxx Group 24 Marine battery which I also purchased from Walmart. I've had the motor out three times now (about 6-8 hours each outing) and its performance has exceeded my expectations. The 45 lbs of thrust is enough to move the canoe, with about 600 lbs of people and gear, at a fairly good clip. The variable speed feature of the motor makes positioning the canoe exactly where you want it a breeze. The only shortcoming, if there is one, is that the configuration of the Scanoe 14 makes it difficult to reach the motor's tiller without an extension. I used a 17-25" telescoping extension for the first time yesterday and that made a real difference in comfort. I'm quite pleased with this purchase and would recommend the motor to others with similar need.
