range... how is it that a fella who sailed with electric propulsion and in a ct 41, at that, was able to gain 7 kts down hill using electric propulsion in conjunction with his sails. yes formosa ct do not sail that fast..lol... and he also has sailed the coastal mexico and into sea of cortez and around. he needs not to park his huge boat in a marina to recharge.

get over minkota, as that aint the way.
if pacific ocean aint enough range, mebbe an rv,.......
