  1. Batteries and Charging
    I'm currently interested in converting a small speedboat to electric, using this 40kw peak brushless electric motor. The plan is to run it on around 100v, using the 50kv variant of the motor to produce our 5000-6000 RPM desired. This motor is 40KW peak, and around 25KW constant so the battery...
  2. Electric Motors
    I have been in the RC model boats and planes hobby for a number of years but decided to branch out into the world of EVs. In RC pretty much everyone uses brushless motors, and the majority of those use outrunners for their good efficiency and thermals. I have recently come across some enormous...

  5. All EV Conversions and Builds
    Hi everyone, I've been fantasising for some time about the possibility to convert a diesel powered boat into a series hybrid, using a diesel generator and a LiFePo battery pack connected to an electric car motor. It would be a semi stationary live-aboard, so run time requirements are pretty...
  6. Electric Motors
    I know this is a bit off the electric car line, but it IS my new project, and I'd love some advice/input, etc. We're in the process of building a sternwheel pontoon boat, using a 6 foot, 8 bucket wheel and two 30 foot pontoons. I would love to electrically power the thing, using battery power...
  7. Non Road Going Vehicles
    The ICE in my 17' Bayliner with a outdrive died. Has anyone sucsessfully converted a stern drive boat to electric? What do you suggest to keep the performance comparable to original?
