Footski,

Yes i have started to use these on most of my builds now, simple and straightforward, coupled with this motor it should pull most things.

  I have used a variety of motors in a variety of builds. But for larger tugs I will used a power seat motor. They are a low rpm and have lots of torque and can be used as a direct drive. On TID tug I am building this motor will be turning a 4in prop. I will give you an update after the water test.

All these big motors and props would seem to make my 1:48, 28" Cervia, under powered.
