  4. I am not being negative, but 60 hp is way to big for this boat! My 57 x 12 had a 50 hp engine which worked fine. It now has an electric motor which is lower in power and still works fine. Your boat will only be drawing maybe 10 inches so as others have said a pod Type electric motor could be best?

  10. In something light with little draft an air cooled electric motor would work fine
  11. You will be on your own! And more than likely on the bottom of a dry ditch once called a canal
  12. As its news, I thought the news section? I did look in general boating but we either posted together or I just beat him I agree Arthur just merge them into wherever they think right
  13. I had a look but did6see any other? What section is his in,?
  14. Anybody else recieved an invite to the consultation for future licensing prices?
  15. it was only 24 volts so no danger
  16. When I was first playing with electric in the bathtub it was remarkable how little energy it required to move and stop it, especially in its stripped out state. It had 3 little keels on it so it so it didnt move sideways to much with wind either, so as you say a low cost solution and given it may draw very little it might not suffer the grounding problems I suffered last year?

  18. Let's be honest our biggest gripe on here is rust, blacking and Painting! This would remove all those! However would a sharp underwater obstacle slice it open? I find it fascinating and little power would be needed to move it. Maybe a small keel to keep it going straight and a pod at the rear for steering job done
