How water enters in the cooling system?

I am brand new in electric RC boat. I bought a twin hull boat like this.

The pressure of the water at speed forces it thru.

If the boat is run very very slowly then at that time the water will still circulate in the system?

Hi Congcon,

If you run the boat very very slowly (which will be hard with the type of motor and ESC at hand, as they tend to burst into life at one third throttle...), the motor will need no cooling at all, as it doesn't have to work very, very hard.

I can't find any pictures of how the inlet is shaped, most likely a piece of slanted tubing sticking out of the hull, but if the outlet is above the waterline, the flow will stop when the boat moves too slow.

Come on, it's a speedboat, floor it!

Regards, Jan.
