Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

there is a ct41 that has been repowered to electric only...uses a beautiful big lithium ion battery bank...his declared price he paid was in excess of 30000usd. yes more than thirty thousand us dollars. he can motor at 7 kts, down hill, and 1.8 kts uphill.
there was seen in barra de navidad a 34ish ft sloop with torqueedo power.. they used torqueedo t1003s to propel their boat then used the removable motor to propel their dink. they loved it. their cost was under 2000usdollars.
