doghousephoto is on a distinguished road
Not sure yet how to start a new thread. I have a photo of my engine conversion. This is the basic set up to get me out of the yard and back to the marina. My final version has cooling fans to keep the controller cool and there are now 8 batteries, three in the old battery housing and another back against the bulkhead (tight squeeze). It basically will get me in and out of the marina and the slip and has done wonders for maneuverability. I have not tested it for distance but does 3kts at 20 amps and 4.5 knots at 50 amps.
