Throttle / Shift Control

Hi guys, I am seeking a little help for my 70kW electric propulsion system. My problem is throttle / gearshift control.Currently I am using the original Teleflex cable control shift that came with the old 7 litre diesel. The system is bulky, uncomfortable to reach and relies on cables.I am using the original forward / reverse throttle cables (25') which run from the cockpit to the engine bay. I have set up the gear control cable to operate 2 micro-switches - one direction triggers the…See More

Aluminum-air batteries

Hi, I am a newcomer to this forum and would like to hear members' thoughts on a ground breaking technology that I am involved in. I believe it can push electric propulsion for sailboats further into the mainstream of sailboat auxiliary propulsion. With all the advantages of electric motors, it's no great revelation that the main inhibitor is battery endurance. Lithium batteries narrow the gap a bit but not enough to release electric minded boaters from the range worry.So I am proposing a form…See More

Mounting Flexible Solar Panels

Hello again everyone.  On the 20th I arrived back at the catamaran to find that a year away from the boat had torn the tarp to shreds and that tarp actually damaged the aft starboard solar array tearing the junction box from one of the panels. It looks to be repairable with some rough solder work and remount the junction box with 5200.  Then I will test the panel to see if it is still working.  Otherwise the idea of having a insulating material under the panels and the cabin roof is good but…See More

Solar Boat Suntiano.

Like Fritz and Matt I'm a huge fan of solar boating. Our boat Suntiano is solar powered. The boat was launched for the first time in 2014It evolved in a usable boat. We especially like to use it in Friesland (Northern part of the Netherlands).We use the boat like it is supposed to be used: as a recreation boat. It turned out to be a nice sailing picknick place, complete with fridge, running on free energy! How cool is that?! Even on a cloudy day it is able to keep up with other open boats. We…See More

Using used Lithium ion batteries (from Teslas, Leafs, Volts etc)

Used Lithium ion batteries from cars such as the Tesla, Leaf, and Volt are starting to show on Ebay and other web sites.  They cost about 1/2 the price of new lithium iron phosphate batteries, and so are tempting to those of us on a budget.  I have never been comfortable with the idea of using lithium ion batteries in a boat and have mentioned it in a number of discussion here.  I have just found a more detailed, and entertaining discussion, of the problems with these recycled battery packs on…See More
