You don't want to draw power from your receiver battery.You would want a seperate 6 volt battery for a small 6volt pump.You don't really need a water pump if your engine doesn't have a clutch.The forward movement of the boat supplies enough cooling water from the pickup.I bought a boat that had a nitro engine in it that someone setup an electric pump to only operate at idle or at very low speed and was not on all the time.It had the throttle servo arm touch a switch that turned the pump on and off and was also setup as a bilge pump when the pump was on .

As he said, you don't need one in your electric boat. The only exceptions would be if you have major water leakage problems, use a fire monitor on a scale boat or run a combat ship

I think the pump in the boat is a 12 volt winshield washer pump operated on 6 volts.Just enough pressure to keep the water flowing when needed.

Hi Superflyboy,

Why not just run a 1/8" tube through the hull facing the prop and have water tubing run to your motor and out the boat? This way, your propprovides the water pressure as you accelerate rather thancontantly runa dedicated pump that will take away from your runtime and add more weight.

-Rich.
