Hi All, Thanks for the words of encouragement, hope to pick the boat up on Sun 23rd Aug 2020.
I have a bit of a dilemma about what to do with the power chain, I have 7 surface drive boats already, and my pet hate with them is they don't reverse very well,( get stuck in reeds no way out).
Currently the boat has subsurface prop and some trimtabs.
I was considering keeping it sub-surface and using a high torque low revving brushless out-runner, running 22.2v on a 150A Flycolor ESC which woud be efficient and have full reverse:-
KV Value: 560KV
Maximum Power: 1760W
Voltage: 11.1-36V (3-8S battery) (ESC is only 6S max)
No-load Current: 1.5-1.6A (maximum current 80A)
the above motor will not rev high enough for a surface drive.
Or another surface drive using the motor below, which would go faster,
