Re: Islander 36 electric inboard? diy

I would like to have regen but most kits are far more expensive cause the controller is more expensive as is the motor...

Im on a budget...and to change to a high thrust 3 or 4 blade is not in the books for me

ideally I would love a direct drive, thrust bearings dc motor package with 4 deep cycle batteries...

I would love to go even simpler than having a controller...

I have sprockets and chains galore(motorcycle projects)

charging wil be from a generator, portable.

I only need 2-3 hours runtime in reality...really basic.
