Re: Repowering with an electric engine?
probably had more to do with bean counters and intended useage than anything else...
like zeehag says there are guys out there and many who have done succesfull conversions and are quite happy, sometimes the info is hard to get
btw I peruse craigslist always just to see what the market is like and what boats are going for these days and I have seen 4 or 5 electric sailboats that have been converted and for sale
one is zenergy down in san diego I beleieve and the guys who do these conversions REALLY up the price compared to diesel inboard equals...
for example there was an ericson 30 I beleive similiar standard ones would go for 5-10k ready to go and this guy wanted something like $20k
so it seems like quite the added value to a boat, or its just crazy owners who invested too much and dont want to lose out on all their money from the conversion! jaja
Merit 25 sold...Islander 36 still afloat? who knows...Im still in Columbus, and back...I think...jajajaja!!!!
