We are the last sailing lobster boat in the state of Maine but the first to go electric. My son and I found the old Sarah Mead in a barn ready to be burned when we bought her and started the restoration. She sails now and fishes as she was built to do, but never designed with a diesel engine in her. Electric is the only option that fits this boat.
We do need to do some other repairs to her as she has some cracked ribs, typical for a boat this age, and design. We will be making a video of the entire process and are more than willing to share ideas and new discoveries with anyone who wants to talk boats.
We have received the parts and batteries needed for the conversion, and I have to tell you, they are impressive. The quality of material is excellent and clearly designed by someone who has been on the water. I did a lot of research before buying Electric Seas system, and none could compare. The 360 will more than power our boat at 8 tons of weight. Like I said we are a commercial boat so we need to go regardless of wind, wave or other weather. The Friendship Sloop was known as a fishing vessel that could bring her crew home regardless of the conditions. I believe the Electric Seas 360 will meet that standard.

We have a history with Madrid- lived there in '77 and '83- very sparsely populated back then!- but are closer to the water now. Please let me know about the electric system you're looking at. With a 38' ketch we're in the larger size group with you and just beginning the investigation into electric propulsion.
I have a few questions concerning a project I am currently working on, I'm still in the early stages and i'll be honest not truly sure what I'm doing, LOL. I live on a rather large lake here in alabama, At the start of the summer we had a pedal boat that I added an old 10 lbs thrust trolling motor too, and then later built a roof and added a 45 watt harbor freight solar panel kit, on a sunny we could run the boat without a battery in it, which was fun in knowing that we could run on "sun…See More
I am in the middle of converting my 33' Seawind Catamaran with twin inboard electric motors. This boat had twin outboards 9.9HP Honda motors that were located in a inward position between the hulls that made it impossible to work on unless you removed the engines (hours to remove or install). So I removed those gas outboards for the last time and bought two 35 HP rated, brushless 3 phase motors with Curtis controllers to run on 48Volt Lithium batteries from a Chevy Volt (2 for each). I am…See More

I have an ASMO Thoosa 9000 system in my Ericson 30+ Does someone have a guide to pulling data out of the system? I have heard that the controller keeps some event data. I notice when I open the controller black box, that the big green brick inside has an RS 232 port. Is that just for programming, or can one also pull data out of it? I've like to be able to keep a log of what's happening with the motor and battery system. Thanks. --Ernie GalvanZenergy, Ericson 30+See More
