Re: Islander 36 electric inboard? diy
like a thrust bearing plate? yup I would need that...that ev place is exactly where I wanted to buy my parts...its just that I have never heard of a real world report on usage of one of their systems on a boat similar to mine...
the palmer p60 was known for being weak but smooth running and you are right around 10hp at the prop, similar almost to the atomic 4 in that regard.
I would not need anything more than what came on the boat powerwise...
again you are right on the money about the gear down...most guys are using 2.5 or so to step down the rpms...
Im very familiar with rc electric stuff...so I would love to know more about certain types of motors "off the shelf " and how to regulate them
