Hello, I was hoping that the small engines might run more reliably with a flywheel but you are probably right.

My present plan-A is actually an RC sailing boat (I have built some 1m class boats before) because it should be able to tow a lure for a very long time before recharging.
While electric would do for just dropping some lines out there and coming back, I don't think batteries would last long enough for a few hours trolling. Like you say, the weedeater is probably better than the small glows.

I think the boat should also have a small sail as a backup and to aid visibility at long distance.
