Re: Repowering with an electric engine?

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.
if you guys wanna chat w ith him, go to fazepoo and speak with pitt bolinate. he HAS done it.

it seems you all equate electric propulsion with MINKOTA, the pisspoorest example.if you want to equate to a functional outboard already on market, compare with torqueedo, as there is self sustainability in that..lol
get over minkota, as that aint the way.
if pacific ocean aint enough range, mebbe an rv,.......
