Introduction

Hello,I just joined the group and am looking forward to learning about electric conversions.My wife, Myra, and I have sailed for the past 30 years and currently own a Morgan OI 28.  Spirit still has the original Volvo MD-7A, but the next time the engine requires more than oil, diesel or filters, the electric conversion will begin.  For now I will keep quiet and read all the info on the forums. Glad to be here,CarlSee More

Introduction

Hello,I'm Doug and I just discovered this forum and its wealth of info. I've been active in the EV car world for 4 years now, and have continually watched the marine industry make its inroads with electric propulsion over the past several years.

The goal is to…See More

Newish Solidnav user seeking a bit of solar help

Our Cal 2-27 came equipped with a Solidnav drive from the previous owner. Over the few months we have owned the boat I've come to really love the drive.
