I do like the brake idea on the output shaft. This was used on the boat My Way a 46' skater that I rode on. Docking was still a little hairy and the boat was very loud at idle. Thats why I'm thinking about 2 very small motors for docking and idle areas. I know they now have trannies that can hold big power but they do fail, I was thinking more of crash boxes with nuetral and forward only. Also how do I get in touch with Ed Mosmiller?
