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.
The tank on top you may need to refil while in the canoe and carry a seprate can.
