Spygull is right. I now have a dual console outboard, but still have both my 12' wide beam canoe and a 12' Portabote.
(The Portabote is a folding rowboat that you can hang a small outboard on, over a grand new.) If you are fishing sheltered bay waters, the Portabote is dry. It supposedly can handle a bay chop, but hey, a 12' rowboat is a 12' rowboat. I would never use it in the state channel. As for my canoe which I use in local lakes, I have taken it to the EDGE of the bay from the Grand Canal in Massapequa. Turning around in a 12 knot driven chop becomes an adventure.
(I wouldn't bring my best gear!) Kayaks seem much faster against the tide.
