Was thinking of running a brushless motor but decided against it and run the 380 standard motor i have enough torque to rescue another boat just with the 380, my boat needs a few deck odds and bobs its a bit open plan but when its out on the water the small detail really does not matter. good sailing and keep pulling.  :-))

I found that running at 6v SLA,
the stock motor and prop runs
the boat well enough.
Tried a 385 but didnt get any
where near as good performance.
