Re: Islander 36 electric inboard? diy

thanks guys, so it was the same boat...I loved the article because it related to my needs, his boat was only 1500lbs or so lighter than my boat, but I have a longer waterline which is a benefit...he also emphasized on it been auxiliary power in terms of HP. which is a great point we seem to ignore...

bernard motissier for example sailed around the world twice on an 8hp or so 1 banger inboard, just to help anchor and whatnot...his boat was 39 feet and displaced over 20k lbs...!!!
