Electric Outboards

Hi Guy's and girls.
New contact for , what I think, sounds good.
Am present I am awaiting for a quote for two units to be delivered to Mallorca.
Very much cheaper than one bow thruster.

I'll be onboard soon.

These could hide forever in a rack of Minn-Kotas or Motorguides, and provide about as much thrust as a you can pull on a rope with one hand. I don't think they are going to help you very much, wherever you place them and however you control them. They may push a 22' boat up to 3mph, but that would take a while to get there, and it would not happen if there was any wind. Minn-Kota does offer a 2hp version with remote controls, but it needs four batteries!
