Hi george I did my set up last year. I did the entire job my self. I am verey happy with set up and the power when I need it is unreal !. I use a honda 2000 when I take a trip of more that a day sail or go out on the hook for the night. this keeps my house bank up and running. I run the charger for one hr in the morning and 1 to 1.5 in the evening. the only real trade off I see is when I do motor it is at about 3.5 knts compaired to 4.5 before. now that said I can go alot faster than that when needed. I am real happy I went with the 180i bill
I have not purchased an e-prop system yet. I have looked at several web sites and am impressed with several motors and controllers. I have done some work with making motor control panels in another industry so I would like to use some of that experience to set up the best system I can for my needs and my boats characteristics.
So far my motor list is comparing ratings and I'm looking at characteristics that will assist regen and durability. Walter

Welcome to Electric Seas! Thanks for joining. I've sent out invitations to a few other people you know in the electric boating community so hopefully they'll join us here soon too. I'm also just about to say something on the EBYG forum and hopefully the idea will catch on. So what do you think so far? I think there's alot of potential with this. Members can customize their profiles, companies can put info about their companies here, boat owners can put info about their boats, everyone can post photos, videos, links to news and products, and schedule events on the calendar. In my opinion the forums are very easy to use here, too.
Anyway, please go ahead and play around with this. There's alot you can do to start, with your profile- I noticed your photo is abit "pixelated" mine was too when I first uploaded a low res photo. You can upload a higher res photo for your profile pic, too. Also, upload any photos of boat projects, or anything you think is interesting. And just for fun, there's lots of widgets you can add to your profile- check out mine and David "Davy" Jones' profiles, I have my favorite books on display and Davy has a really cool shark break game there as a fun distraction.

Early this past season I did several harbor tests with my Thoosa 9000 EP system on my 8 ton 30 foot sailboat. The yard was delayed in stepping my boat's 300 lb mast so I did tests with it off and on the boat and made a graph comparing the two. I also made another graph of a test I did at the end of the season in 2011 with the boats bottom slightly fouled and compared with this seasons test with a clean hull.:…See More

I have most parts for a sailboat installation. 7.2 kilowatt Etek, controller (no reverse), throttle, solenoid, a control box showing 0,1,2, to be used for reverse and forward. I need the basic electrical plan with color coding and size of wire info, on a 48 VDC setup.ScottSee More
Looking to replace an outboard motor with an electric one on a 20 foot catboat weighing approximately 5000 lbs. Any feedback on what size-HP that would best fit this type of daysailer would be very welcome. Thanks
Hi I I'm a new member on this forum and thought I should introduce myself..My name is Adrian and I will be building a 28' Pontoon boat called a super Huck.The plans have been bought from Glen l and I have to have them in a week or two..Ok so my first question is about what type of motor to use for this project..I have been looking at the Mars Brushless PMAC motor but I'm not sure s it looks like it needs an expensive controller.. Is impossible to make a controller are do I have to buy one? Also…See More
I am looking at building a bolt on wind turbine to go in place of my mast as I do "the loop" the goal being to provide 1000W @ 48 volts and the hope is not to go past the 15.5 feet clearance needed to navigate most of the trip without having to remove it.. Also 4x 250 watt solar panels for another 1000w now for the fun ... Place in line a capacitor pack ether replacing one of the batterys at 12v this set up could prolong battery life by at least a 3rd or a full 48v cap pack right at the drive…See More
