Ok I got a smaller lighter weight boat went from a 18.5 foot sea ray open bow out board to a much lighter 16 foot closed bow in/out engine. Stock motor is a 120hp gm in-line 4 . I’m wonder would a warp 9 be sufficient with a zilla and the right lithium pack to make up to 150hp.

You really want a water cooled motor. Warp 9s are only rated to 20-25hp continuous, and boats need a LOT more than that continuous. A leaf will will do ~110hp indefinitely, possibly more with an infinite supply of cool lake water.

Well I just bought a leaf motor , and a inverter/controller and charger. 800$ and it has 23,000 miles. Now I need to figure out what I want to do battery wise.
