Islander 36 electric inboard? diy

Hi guys,

I read a while ago that there was a member with an islander 36 that used a forklift motor and controller..and converted to electuc propulsion quite succesfully..

if that member or anybody else with an islander 36 or similar boat, displacement and specs has detailed info on install I would appreciate it.

I removed my dead palmer p60 engine...I have shaft and coupler still...

I am currently readiing through the yahoo electric boat group as well as other forums...

Im looking for specifics on performance pertaining to the islander 36 as its a bit bigger than most diy kits offer like the thunderstruck kit, ev conversion kits on ebay etc...

I will only be using for docking and anchoring...
