I don't know. But, my guess is that a golf cart motor rarily runs for 45 minutes. That is a fairly long run for most of use anyway.

Do you know what the amp draw is at your cruising speed? And do you know the continuous duty rating of your motor?

The guys that race (very high speed) electric and also
2 stoke Radio Control boats use water to cool the motors / engines. Try some small diameter copper tube around the outside of the motor, one end is under water facing forward, the other exits behind. Some have the inlet behind the prop and exit above the water.
