2 guys,decoys and a dog you might make 5 or 6 mph.You'll have 2 dogs on your hands one to hunt with and one to ride in.
You are also going to be very close to over the capacity rating of the boat.That is a darn small 14 I'm betting the capacity is around 600.including gear.I would think long and hard before going out on possibly very cold water in a boat that small with that load.
That little boat and little motor will both be badly over loaded.
