Carl BonnerCarl Bonner Club Members Posts: 1

I'm trying to determine the best motor(s) for my boat. Its a Dumas American Enterprise. Its 50" LONG (1300mm) AND 12" (300mm) BEAM. TWIN SCREW WITH GEARTRAIN FOR SINGLE MOTOR, but could change to twin motor. I was planning on using a 12v gel cell for power.

    You would be better using lipo batteries with two 100Amp ESC's and a pair of 3639-1100kv brushless motors or 3648-1450kv motors.
    Props 3blade 37mm or 2blade 40mm.

    Dear Gents good day.

    I am working on a project which concerns the replacement of the old gas-engine with electric motor and his components.

    The boat is a single hall 1200mm and I need your advice regarding motor, esc, and battery (ies) selection.

    Awaiting yours

    No idea. Hull shape? Vee or round? Single screw? Twin screws? Weight? Speed expected?

    Impossible to answer without more info.
