Default Re: electric motor

With electric motors you are better off being over powered than under. You have to take in account fighting wind and current. A bigger motor doesn't use as much juice to get a certain speed as a smaller motor would working harder to get that speed. On my 15' boat I have a 55lb thrust because it was the biggest 12 volt available and it works great. Just my 2 cents.
