VONNY MY MOTOR DOES THE SAME THING AND I FOUND THAT THE DUST OF THE MAGNETS IN THE HEAD WAS CAUSING THE MOTOR TO STICK I CLEANED INSIDE WITH ELECTRICAL CLEANER AND IT STARTED TO WORK FINE BUT YOU MAY HAVE SOMETHING ELSE GOING ON AND ALSO MAY SURE YOU ARE NOT COVERED UNDER WARRANTY IF YOU JUST GOT THE BOAT

SOURCE: motor won't run
Look at the red indicator arrow when you hit the foot pedal. If it lights up, the motor should run. If not, inspect the splices under the top cover on the shaft. They will stop the motor if corroded or burnt.

I have a 4 speed with 48 lbs of thrust. On mine, 1 through 3 will move me out pretty well, however, 4th is similar to an overdrive gear in a car or truck and is meant more for maintaining a speed with less draw on the amps.
I certainly wouldn't want to take off with it. I suspect it is the same with your 5 speed. The boat needs to be up to speed and then those two gears will maintain it, with 5th being optimal as far as low draw in amperage.

It depends on the Amp/Hour rating of the battery and the amount of current your motor draws on setting 1.
