I bought this motor to propel a 12ft sailing dinghy on inland water on calm days, or when I couldn't be bothered with rigging the sail. It is plenty powerful enough for the job, and I find that I usually run on the third out of the five speeds, which has the boat going at a slow walking pace (~3mph). At this setting I have had over 3 hours usage with a 55AH deep-cycle battery. Do get a deep-cycle battery, i.e. one that is intended to be run to exhaustion. It worked straight out of the box, it is very light, it has adjustable tilt and depth. Time will tell, when it comes to the resilience and longevity of the prop. I bought it using 'ship to store' which worked seamlessly.
