I'm doing a 23 foot center console as well. Can you share more about this project?
Well, it’s a big project. 42’ custom built fly-bridge aluminum cat built in New Zealand In 1990. It has twin Hamilton Jet HJ291 propulsion units I just rebuilt. I purchased two Tesla motors (each had one broken motor mount). I got them very inexpensively. I’ll fashion motor mounts because motors will be perpendicular to hulls. I will have to weld spider gear diff or replace it with straight diff (to lock the 2 axle ports on each motor to turn together [same rpm]).
Im now considering motor controllers, BMS controllers, and battery pods. I like EV-controls unit it doesn’t have a BMS. ingenext‘s unit has BMS combined with motor controller. Thunderstruckmotors(has a BMS) is the only vendor that seems to be helpful with sales support. The others, including EV west seem to brush off email and phone questions saying “just buy what they have on their website“. EV west said their insurance prohibits them from any marine Project… so do t tell them your application.
I will need to re-package the battery packs since my motor hatches are 35” wide. SuperFastMatt has YouTube video on converting a 1950 Jaguar sedan that may be helpful to you.
I guess that’s enough detail for now. 😀. Have a great day, Steve
