Prop Shaft Brush & Curtis 134 Throttle

All the thru hulls & strut on my boat are bonded to the keel along with the lightening bonding. My prop shaft is isolated from the electric drive. Does it make sense to install a drive shaft brush connected to the bonding system so the shaft anode protects all underwater metals?Curious how folks with the curtis potbox throttle protect it from the elements. Thanks,BobSee More

Daylight readable display

I took my recently converted sail boat for its first test cruise yesterday. I have a sevcon display that is very difficult to read in the outdoor sun light. Does any one have a good display that they can recommend? The sevcon connects to the electric motor controller over CAN bus so any display with CAN bus potentially could be useful to me.

Coast Guard requirements for voltages over 50 volts

Hello group. I am new to this forum but have used electric on my Cal 34 for years. I am considering upgrading my 48V 5kw system to 10kw or 12kw as the 5kw was the only choice in 2010 but is underpowered. I would like to keep the wiring already installed by going to 72 Volts. I have heard that a system over 50 volts would require specialized ground fault circuitry and that the Coast Guard has a problem with a 72 Volt system. Is there any official guidance on what is permitted and what insurance…See More

Canada Day 150th

Celebrated Canada Day 150th in Vancouver Harbor aboard Bobcat "Black Hole Sun". Day one Jim and I departed Shelter Island Marina on the good advice from our friend Art, via the North Arm of the Fraser. After a short leg for the day we anchored in Cowards Cove for the night by deploying the Xi5 and hitting the GPS Spot Lock. We enjoyed the remainder of the evening by getting some sun on places it has never shone before or at least in 30 years. Supper was steak and potatoes. We launched our first…See More

Connect electric motor on saildrive?

Hi!I plan to install some kind of electric motor instead of the Diesel engine I have today. The boat (44ft trimaran) has a saildrive today and the easiest way would be to keep the saildrive and connect a motor to it. Anyone here who has experience doing something like this?I'm looking for a motor about 10-12kw continues power. Battery bank LifePo4 400A 48V. What motor would you recommend? PMAC, BLDC. I have seen cheaper ones at Golden motor, a little bit more expensive package at Electric motor…See More
