Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

I hear and understand all of what has been said. I needed an engine for my Catalina-22 I thought long and hard about an electric outboard engine. In the end I purchased a 6hp gas engine. I still like the idea of electric and its day may come. Maybe a hybrid will be the answer. Today is not the future.
I am still looking at and toying with ideas to move with alterative energy. I would have just bought a motor boat if ideas, adventure and dreams were not part of my agenda.
Good day, Lou
