We bought this to use with our tender
The lack of power and limited range, although disappointing was not a surprise because we were aware of it and could accept it.
First the positives:
Very Clever design.
Easy to use.
Vastly overpriced. BMW price
for a Great Wall product.
Essentially this is an expensive toy at best.
No one carries spares except the importer.
Recharging is very slow.
So what went wrong in 2 months use?
The skeg broke while we had it in a cockpit
shut off key fob broke and discharged the magnet into the sea - this disabled us for 10 days until a replacement could be found.
Other bits have fallen off due to glue failures.
The fairing of the leg is twisted. Not sure how that happened as we treat it with kid gloves.
My advice is to buy any other brand gas outboard
- it will outlive this toy.
