Re: Diesel-Electric Propulsion System

Canal boats are a perfect candidate for EP. Have you done anything land or water with electric propulsion?

Re: Diesel-Electric Propulsion System

Bob,
Not had any hands on as yet, but I used to service and repair 3300 hp diesel electric locomotive engines many years ago so I have a bit of experience, I was looking at the above waterline site at the possibilities of a pod mounted hybrid on a 30 ft yacht I have sitting waiting for something to do, will let you know should anything happen.

Mik

Re: Diesel-Electric Propulsion System

For your canal boat I don't think you will need to deal with hockey puck sized diodes. lol
