Outboard is much better

But there are places where you aren't allowed to use an outboard.
My trolling motor will just barely push my canoe with two occupants upstream on my home river. My outboard does it handily. It's also lighter and easier to use.
My raft won't take an outboard but it will take a trolling motor, so I have each. I use the trolling motor on electric only lakes with my canoe, and it works pretty well on still water. I have yet to run out of juice with my battery.
