Not sure about the draw. I haven't installed it yet. I'm trying to get all the details to make sure it's worth doing.

The 3 12v batteries that I want to use weigh 357lbs. If the more weight the longer it'll run there is 3 other 12v batteries that would weigh 387lbs.

Those should have more amp hour reserves. Careful, there are as many ways to rate amp hours as there are manufacturers. Hard to tell if you are comparing apples to apples but, lead weight is a solid indication of reserve capacity

Can you link us to the battery you found?

The battery I want to use is the SRM-4D. I can get them for about $140 each.

I can get around that. I have a buddy that's a dealer for interstate batteries. My only worry is not having enough run time.

If a battery has 390 minutes of reserve capacity and you connect 3 together do you still have 390 or do you have 1170 and what exactly does the reserve capacity mean?

The greatest run times are achieved with massive low voltage batteries connected in series...speaking from a Golf Cart point of view. And since you are using a golf cart 36v motor....I would suggest six 6v GC batteries. And if that is not enough I would suggest you add 2 more and run your motor on
48v with eight 6 volt batteries. Golf Carts do not use 12 volt batteries for a reason Hope this helps. I'm out of advice on this one. Keep us posted as to what you do and what happens

Will a 36v motor run off from 48v without damaging the motor? The purpose for my project is that there is a Bass fishing club nearby that does not allow any gas powered engines. Most of the guys have 12-14ft boats with 3-4 trolling motors on them. I have a 17ft boat with a blown motor and the club president said that I could use a golf cart motor. The tournaments are 6-7hrs but I would probably only run the motor about 80-100 minutes. When you say that a golf cart gets 90 minutes of run time is that 90 minutes of full power or will it be completely dead at 90 minutes. We have 2 golf carts but have never used them for a long period of time like the boat would be used.

That is 90 minutes of WOT peddle time. A gd speed controller can stretch that some but, I don't know exactly how much. A Series 36v motor on 48 volts is turning faster so you should have to run it less.
Just a note on batteries......since you are going to try to run as far as possible. Be aware that permanent damage can be done by running the batts down too far, especially with repeated incidences. Research all you can about lead acid battery use and maintenance. A 6 volt battery will hold More than 6v when fully charged (6.75 + -)and is considered empty at 6.0 volts. Remember it is the amps you are using - not the volts.....
