Sweet, thanks! That will take some digesting! ;')

I've been talking directly w/ national Torqeedo reps, so I don't feel way off base. This is a lot of new info to absorb.

Re: Electric Propulsion

Howdy and Ahoy!

This is a great thread, and has an amazing amount of information in it about Electric Sailboats. The sharing of experience is outstanding.
___________

I have started (April 2017) a new thread focused on showing photos and data of examples of boats that have been converted to electric motors. This thread will include boats for sale, with current ad links, but it is not a requirement that the boats be for sale today.

IF you have converted your own boat to electric motor, I invite you to look at the thread, and to post some photos of your boat, your own electric motor installation, some specs on your motor and boat (e.g. displacement, LOA, etc.) and your answers to some of the 12 questions I ask in the first post.

The new thread is intended to be an Illustrated Guide to the types of boats and electric motor installations, and also as a focused thread to show boats that are completed, in project state, or are for sale. Photos are important for that thread.

I hope you find the thread helpful, and if you subscribe to it you will see new additions to it. I will be adding new boats I find as I continue searching and researching boats. I will also post a link in that thread to this one here, so that folks will find the good content already posted in this one.
