We created a shroud to block the water spray but it proved not effective. The water still sprayed everywhere at high speeds (20% power). We’ll have to make another shroud to cover more of the band. What we did learn was that the motor is POWERFULL! We only let it draw eight amps (50 amps at 100%), but even with a crummy prop, we were able to move a lot of water. When the new shroud is finished we will really test the motor!!!
