    Sorry to hear that Colin, mine is lower back with trapped nerves which gives server pain down my left leg, hopefully they can remove a small amount to release the nerves. Cheers.

    It's a test Colin. If as you say it has unwanted effects that do not give the required results it can be restored in seconds. SLA's may give a good runtime but they are not the best for delivering high currents for any length of time. Of course if there is improvement then the motors could also be removed, allowing the props to free rotate and reducing the overall weight and any drag effect.

    Only problem with disconnected motors is that the prop will add considerable drag thus slowing boat and overworking the other 2 motors.
    Cheers Colin.

    Hi Jon
    Only one way to find out, try them. They should give a reasonable run time but the overall weight will not help with fast speed. If you are happy with the performance all OK. Another quick test would be to disconnect an outer motor on each side and see what the effect this has. This will reduce the current draw and may not affect the overall performance greatly. Just disconnect one lead to each motor and insulate so should only take a few seconds.
    Cheers
