15 volt 545, 35-40mm 3 or 4 blade prop, direct drive. Run it on a 6 volt SLA.

There were two members in my club who had one each. Sadly, neither is with us any more and the boats were passed on. They both ran them on what was a fairly standard set up at the time, a 540 and a Bobs Board (servo mounted resistance controller) and were almost satisfactory. The 545 would be a better match to the hull, any 15A ESC capable of handling 6 volts (i.e. pretty much any of them) will work, ignoring the ebay offerings. Look at Mtronics marine types.
