I am seeking advice and experience on equipping an electric boat. I have
attached an image. http://www.nabble.com/file/p13418241/1t_Solar.jpg

The preliminary specification - Length is 14.7m, overall beam is 1.6m, WL
beam 1.14m and displacement 1t.

It has a 1.2kW wind turbine and 5 X 200W solar panels. There is 9600Wh of
battery storage,

I am planning on a 48V system that will give peak output of 4.74kW. This
will give maximum speed of 12.4kts. Daytime cruising using storage, wind
and solar should be at 10kts requiring 2.3kW. Overnight cruising using
wind and solar for running and charging through the day and batteries at
night requires 1.15kW to do 8kts.

There is enough accommodation for two people overnight and will be roomy
enough for four during day cruises.

It seems a practical concept. Will take about AUD25k to build it. The hull
is in three pieces so this will make it easy to transport and reduces the
area needed to build it in.

I am seeking advice on solar panels, wind turbine, batteries, motor and
controls. I would like to locate suppliers of good equipment and gain from
others' experience on combining these energy systems for an electric
vehicle.
