Dry run

Did a dry run motor test today at the boatyard. I can't tell you how nice it is to have a motor that doesn't require water to cool itself. It was impossible to start up the old motor while out of the water.

I had to make a few adjustments to the controller based on throttle orientation--other than that it worked as it should. Throttle seems very touchy but probably due to lack of resistance. I'll plan to launch and commission the motor sometime over the next few days. Hopefully minor things at this point like adjusting the power output, confirming voltage/RPMs, etc.
