Not me but thanks for your great reply...

Some of the motors have 60" shafts and well over 100lbs of thrust, about like a small BT. It's pushing the bow where there is little keel. Im sure someone has tried it, somewhere.

Man you people don't like to think outside the box...

So the real bow thruster is 24 volt and the redneck bow thruster is 36 volt. Anyone know how to convert foot lbs to HP?
