From my prospective.
Future boat. Hoping 36-55 feet ish. Probably 40.
are cove design: they don't flush well. A small electric could be ideal during most conditions.
From teachings, we rarely use iron sail. Harboring, currents on shoal, mostly recharge batteries. Basically 1-3 hours per week.
But storms happen. Seen a 5 dayer with 3 days exceeding 70 knot
. We'd be with Davey Jones collection if without a long hour iron sail.
Researching through shaft electric machines to aid docking
, spin prop at dock
, generate electricity at sea using diesel and basically not much different to existing layout if layout has ability to extend internal shaft length and mount diesel farther forward.
Wouldn't matter if it's not a big electric machine, as long as it can be hoisted or moved out of the way and replaced with a Jack shaft at sea. Solar panels
That's where one of my researching time is used.
Cutting diesel to 1-3 hours a week, if not to charge due to panels
, maybe just to lubricate.
are fairly oily nowadays.
Loving sailing (or bobbing playing games like, " ripple ho, wind ho, man overboard
Thank you.. I'll read websites later.
