Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

Not exactly, I only check the remote when heading out and when tied back up, need to cycle thru a lot of the settings.
But in general my 48v string at 216a never drops below 75% soc on display and when I return to slip generally I have recovered to 100%. Now the variables on the regen depend on time out and speed etc......I'm usually out 4-6 hrs as the norm, on shorter trips say a few hours I get back to about 83% before hooking back up to shore power and charger.
The coasting regen has been good, and I don't race obviously.
I have never seriously looked into solar or wind applications, but I'm also not a coastal cruiser etc....I have a honda EU2000i I take with me for piece of mind on overnighters when I don't have shore power option, never had to use it once yet
There are a lot of variables. This spring I will read the regen amps going in over a week of my small evening cruises and update post.
