Electric motors
:) For what it's worth, those interested in electric outboards may wish to view this website. http://www.earthling.co.nz When the time comes prior to launch, I will look seriously at 2 of these for my Pahi 42. They just need a bigger prop. :) katfish

Katfish, have you compared those with the Torqeedo brand? (http://www.torqeedo.com) --Rich in CO, USA

Re: Electric motors
Hi Corich, Yes I have. The Torqueedos are just a little bit underpowered for my liking. They would probably produce enough speed for most circumstances, but I would like that bit extra in reserve for the emergency situation. A bit like my car. I have a turbocharged Volvo convertible that I drive economically like a Honda Accord, but when I need it (and I have a few times), it can go like a bat out of hell to get me out of a tricky passing situation. And I think my Pahi 42 will be a bit heavier than the standard, and so would appreciate that little bit more power (and more importantly torque). Best regards, katfish

Torqueedo motors

Just to complete the information about Torqueedo Motors here.
Torqueedo has now motors up to 80 hp in their product portfolio. Far more than a Pahi 42 will need!
