Forklift Pump Motors

719 0
Looking for a motor for my 30ft sailboat, that weighs about 7k pounds loaded and needs to move at about 6knots (seems like 2kw is what most people suggest) What is a good motor, at say 48v, for this application? It seems hydraulic pump motors from electric forklifts might be a good way to go.

EDIT just saw the stickies and can't find a delete button.
