I applaud your approach, and while I am not ready for the leap to electric sailboat motors it will take you and others to keep plugging at making it work for the rest of us.

I have an on-line friend in SF Bay who has converted a 25ft double-ender to a 48volt electric system recharging at dock and reports usable power to the electric motor for at least 8hrs.
