Could any of you kind folks please advise me on a brushed motor and propeller size and type please. I am doing a restoration of this boat I have taken the petrol engine out and hope to replace with electric, but would like decent speed. Many thanks.

I am also building this boat but haven't finalised the power plant yet. However have a look at Robbobs build blog on this site for some inspiration.

PS I think you may want to consider Brushless motor if you want reasonable speed. although an 850 -900 size motor may do the job.
