Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

I'm in the process of installing a electric drive. I have to get past how to mount it and the right ratio for my boat. I fear it will be a trial and error process there but mounting will be relatively easy. I also need to figure out how to install some type of thrust bearing to keep the prop shaft in one place. not moving back and forth through the stuffing box.
