Three 30's will never propel your boat as fast as two 55's. The 55's will draw more amps, but it would be worth it.

I think if you just put one 55 on the back you would see a major improvement. More motors equal more issues and less time fishing.......

If your wanting to speed out of your electric trolling motors look at getting a 24v motor with variable speed. Even if u don't want a 24v look at a 55lb motor with variable speed they are faster than the 5 speed models.
