    Thanks

    I would prefer two because you will never be sure how the flow is being split and you might fry the ESC or the motor.
    You might get away with it after some rigorous tests to ensure that both components are getting adequate cooling, but there is a risk

    When I was about 5 I had a Star Yachts Endeavour 1. This was later joined by an Endeavour II which my Uncle found, weathered and adrift, on Lake Windermere. My Dad repainted the hull and varnished the deck.
    Sadly all now gone - boats, Uncle and Dad.

    MM1359 is the 46 foot version - it was mentioned in the Model Boats magazine link that I sent from the guy who was building a 34.

    Fisher Motor sailers have been associated most recently with Freeward Marine, hence the confusion over the name, although Freeward do not appear to be a manufacturer currently.

    Sarik Hobbies have the plan for a Fisher 25 and the previous Model Boats article below suggests there is a Fisher 46 plan.

    The designer of Bloodaxe is Roger Stollery - a BIG name in model yachting!
