Greetings! I'm a first time builder attempting the Seaforth Conqueror from scratch. I have built the hull which was a major task but it came out okay. Trying to decide on which motors to invest in. I really don't want to spend $40-50 each for geared motors like Harbor Models has. I was wondering if the RS 545 motors would work in a 36" boat as direct drive. I also have a new in the box Amsterdam tug that I probably should build first as it only has the one main motor and is a ready to build kit, but I spent four years working my way up the ladder on oil supply vessels and got my USCG Master License. So, I have a soft spot for the offshore oil boats. Any advice would be helpful for both boats! Thanks
