I should clarify something! I would not be considering this option for the "so called green" movement! I just like the idea of no engine noise
, no DSL mechanics and no smells! What I see as one cost is the bateries need replacing 5 - 8 yrs!
It was explained by the companies info- that they various electric
engines can be sized to equal the power and cruising speed of a DSL?
The company also states- the batteries are repowered under way by:
(claim is even when under electric
power the wind
generates recharge power to the plant.
3) Also a small DSL genset is available as an option as well.
4) They also ""claim"" that while under sail- the props movement also sends power back to the plant!!!
** That is where I was thinking cruising would not be hampered with Electric propulsion- this is where I am also open to feedback!
** I am also concerned about the electric draw from other systems. This is where this whole concept
raises many questions for me. Again, thanks for any feedback!
