Default "Standard" Battery Configurations for Boat Applications

Hi,

I am wondering why boat setups seem to have even numbers of cells. The Nue motor chart (below) is the same. There are 2s, 4s, 6s, 8s, etc, setups. I have two 5s 5,000mah packs. Is there anything wrong with a 5s2p (18.5v / 10,000mah) set-up?
