Several people have told me I can decrease my thruster run time by going to a larger motor. There is a 6hp on it now and I can go up to an 8hp by simply swiping the motors. Everything else stays the same. Here's my confusion, if everything remains the same (prop, tube diameter, rpms) how will increasing the hp change anything? More hp should only come into play if the 6hp motor is being overloaded. What am I missing here. I don't mind the cost or labor involved but I'd like to hear from you guys before I make the plunge. Thanks.
Oh, it now takes about 45 sec. to make a 90 deg. turn in the harbor. I've been told it should be about half that.
