Electric Drive H28

Yes AC, in light conditions I see an increase in speed as a major plus. Apparently these e motors use just 1 or 200 watts to give a small boost that gets an extra knot or 2. The major down side for electric is range but a small air cooled diesel genny aboard and alls well.

Now 200 watts can be easily gathered most days from solar, so motoring for nothing during the day. So if I could get an extra knot most of the day in light air the increase in speed will probably be in the order of say 25% maybe more but decreasing as the hull speed is approached. I see it as completely different form of sailing that will be really interesting balancing power and wind.

Hi,

 

I'm looking to source an electric motor for a Cascade 36, 30-40hp based in Auckland/Whangarei...Do you know of any dealers in the area, suggestions? I look forward to hearing from you!

 

Regards,

Jonathan
