Yes, but that is the in-rush amperage, which is only needed to get the motor turning... and it only lasts a fraction of a second. You really have to size for the longer, constant amperage loads.

There doesn't seem to be a way to format that table, sorry.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
