Yes, it would be a huge mistake not getting the 24 V system; and you should consider a 70 pound thrust. You won't need to use the max speed all the time but you'll have it if you need it heading into current or wind.

You should also get an 'in-boat' charger that you plug into every night. I have two - two-bankers in my skiff, one for the two main operating batteries and one for the two batteries that run the electric motor. You could get one three-banker if you only have one battery to run your boat and electronics.

Like I've always said, buy the best you can afford and only cry once...
