Why 48 volt motors?

I've noticed the majority of vendors base their EP motors on 48 volts, how come?I saw a Greenstar Marine product at the Portland boat show & the size 10 motor was 24 volts, their larger motor was 48. I think Mastervolt also has a 24 v motor in the smaller size also.That got me to thinking why 48 volts? Is it because golf cart motors are 48 & that became the starting point for recreational EP?  If you could find/get a motor that ran on 24 volts, it would be far easier to have a larger…See More

New to electric seas and electric boating

Hi group,This is our first post, so a brief introduction:We just bought a 43 foot catamaran with twin solomon drives. 5kw each.We are used to old honest yanmar diesels, so this electric propulsion is quite new for us.Also we have not a fully understanding of the system so we will run into technical questions.Hopefully this group can help us out a little. We will share of course on how we fare with this new direction.cheers, PepSee More

Got out for 3 days done about 30 miles under power @ 35amps 4 kts average Got in some good sail time sill working on the regen I am only getting about 2 amps @ 5.5-6 kts got to work on this still its better than nothing. Got to run the EU2000 (about 2 or 3 hours total) to run the chargers and fix dinners as all my cooking is electric also cooking with the inverter eats a lot of power and I am pretty sure I would have to cover at least 2 boats with panels to keep up works pretty good for coffee…See More

Do you know anything about St. Pierre Dories?

I have just gotten a 22' St. Pierre Dory, it has not sails or rudder, but it does have masts. It is a doug-fir ply dory and the late John Gardner consulted during construction. I can handle the basic plywood repairs and scraping old paint etc.  I have no knowledge or experience designing a rudder or sail plan. I have a home built trimaran 28' that I am thinking of scraping since it has electronic propulsion and large sails. If you become my sailing friend and help, will keep fed, will pay for…See More
