Re: Islander 36 electric inboard? diy
I have to install an Alltrax AXE4834 controller.
I won't be using the 1'' thrust bearing I have. The shipwright will put the motor on a large plate with slightly adjustable bolt holes for the motor.
In southern CA. there is a company that sells a bolt on package. Electricyachtsystems or similar.
Yes 36 feet is heavy, but 4 large deep cycle batteries should get you 4 hours at 2/3 hull speed.
Yes, you have to build your own or buy a system from one of the two suppliers.
You need a throttle and solenoid as well.
