I have a 3 blade SS prop on our 20' and I can manage 54 with the...

I use a tender to get them fully charged then store them in the basement until spring. Re-charge and re-install.

Our boat is covered, battery out with the drive all the way down for storage. If I need to move the boat I do this trick. Takes 2 minutes.
