It's probably a good idea to.

yes a 30lb is good and would suit your application just fine.  But....bigger is always better.

I do think a thirty should be fine. Just watch out if you have it on the highest setting, it'll seriously push you around!  ;DWe have a 42 lb thrust and we can't even keep it on 5. It will throw you off the boat.

here is something else to consider, look on eBay for a gently used bow mount trolling motor with about 50lbs thrust.  You won't be dissapointed!!
