Re: Repowering with an electric engine?
Depth of discharge never an issue, while day sailing I recover to full SOC by the time I'm ready to come back to the dock via prop generating while under sail.
48v bank (8xGC2) same set since 2008
DualPRo Quad bank Professional Series charger
Very clean, no smell & very minimal noise
On weight it was basically a trade off for me, batteries in tray where old engine was, boat balanced the same.
How much power do you use (in AH) going out and what amperage with prop regeneration do you achieve? How do you measure this?
