I use a 2.5 HP outboard on a 18' canoe mounted on a side transom. Works well. Be sure to place it a comfortable distance behind you so it's easy to reach yet not so close it's in the way. The tank can be on the top of the motor or it may be a remote tank with a hose. It depends on the type of outboard you have.

Doesn't putting a motor on it take out the point of a canoe?
Try an oar rig instead.|

Rowing is easier than paddling. Oars costs less, smell better and are not as attractive to thieves. Rowing and trolling is a great way to find the fish.

They still float just fine.
