Major test run

Took her out for her first serious test run on the 23rd January. Everything performed very well. Ran the electric motor for over an hour at 4 knots.

Sail drive option for electric motor install

I am looking for affordable sail drive installation for my catamaran to connect to my electric motors. I am looking for these as an easier option to installing a traditional propeller shaft, struts, packing box, etc.  Anyone know of a good source to purchase to purchase two sail drives and use a verticle attachment for my electric motors? (AC-46's).DaveSee More
