Re: Repowering with an electric engine?
Bear in mind batteries have to be replaced every few years, at a far greater cost than the cost of running a diesel for that long.
Agree 100%. And also if planning to charge with solar remember the bank for an electric inboard is likely 48 volts. It takes a lot of panels to get a 48 volt bank charged, or a lot of time.
