I have a Minn-Kota, 85 lb thrust on a 15foot GTO with a 383, that has a foot control which I never use. Its too easy to use the I-Pilot from my seat or hooked to my belt. The bonus is that you can launch and retrieve your boat without a helper or tying a rope to your trailer. It will run my boat for a solid 10 hours of fishing.
