Outcast scout

Recently found a great deal on the outcast scout, so I bought it. I have previously used a small electric trolling motor on a raft and I'm thinking of using it with the scout. Trying to figure out the best way to do it and wondered if anyone has rigged up their scout for trolling.

I have a Scout, and I love it. But I wouldn't consider mounting a trolling motor to it.
Cal, do you find the stock oars actually functional? I've been considering a Scout, but the oars look like toys to me.
I have had mine for a little over a year and used it less than a dozen times, so take my opinion for what it's worth... but for me, the oars are fine. They are more solid than they appear. Another 6" would be nice, but length is not a big deal. Some complain about pinned oars on the frameless boats but I like them on the scout because they are used less frequently on a boat like this, and they can be tucked out of the way quickly and hold firmly in place. On lakes and the river, I use fins most of the time... the oars are just used for quick movements and corrections.
