Default Johnson 970 Motors



Anyone have any info. on these motors. I head they are good motors with lots oftorque. Is it true they make 2 types of this motor, a low RPM version, and a high RPM version?

Have a look here.

Only one type of this motor. If you look you can see two different sets of specs for it some at 6V others at 12V.

The motors are for a future Tug build, still in the design phase. I'm not yet satisfied with the shape of the frames yet. This will be a freelance build. Just going to make it so it looks good to me and I'll be happy. Short, wide, with a big back porch. I want it to look like an old steamer converted to a live-a-board. Maybe even some shorts hanging of the antenna drying in the breeze.

John,

That sounds like an interesting build.  With two motors I guess it's going to be 36" to 40" in length.  Will you do a build log after you're satisfied with the plans?
