Is this motor strong enough for a 14' Jon boat?

Keep your Powder dry and your Musket well oiled.

Hello RugerNiner - I have an aluminum john boat and a similar trolling motor. The thing I would say is it depends on where you plan to use it. If I am easing around in the "Okie" swamp north of me - going for blue-gills and flyers - then the answer is yes as there is essentially no current to work against and I am moving slowly. If I am in the Suwannee River - going after shell-crackers and red-breasted bream and the occasional "pout" (a type of catfish) the answer would be no. There the current would be a bit much for the trolling motor to work against - except now as we are in the season where the rainfall is sparse and the river is low and the current reduced.
Catch a few for me!!! Best Regards - AQH
Edit - if you go to for December 8th - 2016 and look at the front page "A Dry Run"- you can see pictures of the Suwannee River at very low water right now.
