Trolling Motor Recommendation

Hi here.  Just purchased a 2012 sweetwater 1770. 17ft x  7 wide.  It can hold 8 people.  We live on a small 112 acre lake where they only allow electric motors.  I want to take the small gas engine off the pontoon boat and use it in this lake.  I dont need anything crazy just want something large enough to power the boat into the wind if there is any (very little current in the lake).  I am looking to put a terrova 80 lb motor on the boat as that is what Minn Kota seems to recommend for a boat that size.  Will that be powerfull enough.  Not looking for speed just want to tool around with a full load of people on it.  Thanks.
