We have a boat and spend time on the various fresh water lakes around here- Pineview and Willard are a half hour away and bigger puddles like Bear Lake or Strawberry Reservoir are under two hours away. As I typed that, I just remembered that the previous owner of our boat had mounted a trolling motor to the cavitation plate on the outdrive, so I could make a bracket that bolts up to the holes left behind. If I got a 500KV motor, the dual batteries on the boat in series would provide enough voltage for 12K RPM unloaded. I only need to run it for a couple minutes at the most to load up the prop and see what happens, so I'm not too worried about damaging the deep cycle lead acid batteries.
