Electric Outboards Motors
Advantages and Disadvantages, International Manufacturer Reviews
No fuel problems, no warming up -just stop and start as needed.
Earlier in the year we ran a feature on outboard motors including cost, power and so on. We left one out. And perhaps just as well. This is one for the handyman.
THIS is one for the handy type of sportsman who haunts bomb bays, and wrecking wards, or has a mate in a repair shop.

Electric Outboards have ADVANTAGES
Building your own electric outboard
is more than a means of cheap propulsion. This rig is strictly a fisherman's, though it, might have other uses where quietness is desirable. The obvious appeals include: the absence of a cooling' system; the lower scale of electric power means less loss in sheer pins; and no damage from muddy or sandy conditions. Primarily, the owner of this little work-horse is a man who fishes lures in coastal creeks. Doug Hud- son finds the pace ideally suited to trolling from an aluminium flattie, with added advantages in light weight and absence of a noisy underwater exhaust.
The trick with the use of a starter motor to power the unit is that the average kicker would deplete the battery rapidly. Accordingly, you locate a special- ist in auto electrical gear who can re-vamp the start- er to turn much more easily -after all, the thrust required is only low. With a re-wired starter, you should achieve something like 2 1/2h hours' running from a fully-charged battery -
the bigger the battery, the better
. With the use of a pair of oars, mainly for manoeuvring, plus a certain amount of drifting and casting and the judicious use of tides, the small electric outboard takes all the work out of a day's lure-tossing for the cost of charging the battery.
Should you have access to a generator, or a friend who has, costs go way down. Add a spare battery and you have four or five hours' capacity. Some anglers simply switch batteries from car or tractor to bring costs back to zero.
According to Doug, you get pretty good at judging the charge of the battery by the reaction of the propeller. It's wise to change batteries as soon as one starts slowing down. Electric outboards are made commercially, mainly in the US. The commercial jobs are naturally more handsome in appearance than this home-grown, model, which has no on-off switch. A switch, of course, is easilly and cheaply incorporated. This one starts or stops with a clip to the terminal. The efficiency of the unit is a factor of shaft weight and propeller design, both of which need to be matched to the low thrust output. Finding a work- able spare among the wreckage of aged outboards is less difficult than it sounds, since the motor itself is usually the casualty in an outboard of senior years. For some backyard mechanic there's possibly a future in building electric units as a sideline -locating shafts and props, re-wiring starter motors and then connecting them direct to the shaft.
The one thing you won't achieve with these is speed. Allowing for that, choose a shaft and prop from one of the slower outboards not meant for planing hulls. The unit is best used on a lightweight but stable craft such as the punt pictured here. Engineering is simple since there is no clutch, throttle or gearbox, merely a steering arm.
By allowing a 360 degree steering arc the lack of a reverse gear ceases to count. The electric outboard has a large number of plus assets to weigh against the disadvantage of slow speed. Let's add them up: Low weight, low cost, reliability of an electric motor, low or even zero battery fuel cost, quietness, and ease of starting or stopping -a switch. The uses would probably best be on a duck punt or for fishermen, mainly in streams and lakes. Noisefree travel should get better results with trolling, as for educated trout at Eucumbene.

Oceanvolt - New Things in the electric world
After a timid start, electric propulsion is an option which is being asked for more and more often by catamaran buyers.The latest multihulls to go electric are the SIG 45, the Aventura 33 by Martin Defline and the future Aventura 43, both combining extreme performance and comfort. The 8IG 45 we discovered at the last multihull boat show in its electric version is thus equipped with two 8.6 kW saildrive motors with Valence Technologie lithium batteries, and includes efficient hydro generation as standard.
For interested builders, note that the solution being offered is 'plug and play', as a complete, already-configured assembly with comprehensive connections is sent to be fitted...

Cheap boat travel option - with Torqeedo electric Outboard
Launched on May 5th, Model 2007 Torqeedo electric outboard
Sail there was as quick to this premiere a critical eye topics. For those who read the May issue of Boating is this Quiet Boat no stranger. This is a Company based already and sells electrically powered boats from France, Netherlands and the USA. There now Torqeedo added, one in the southern German Starnberg constructed revolutionary and ecological outboard.
The foldable outboard is equipped with an integrated lithium manganese battery with high efficiency. This allows the electric motor is not the only Travel. These Electric motor does not need a connecting cable to the battery.
This One is part of the motor itself, so that it has the appearance of a classic outboard.
The Torqeedo Travel is a feather weight of just 12 kg, including the battery.
The electric outboard models are the only foldable electric motors on the market. They are supplied in a waterproof transport bag of 31 x 32 x 45 cm, easy to store on board or at home. During the demonstration the parts were removed one at a time from the bag and put together in minutes.
Then a test run on an inflatable boat and trimaran. The sailboat is significantly heavier, he still took a slightly higher rate, probably, because of the slimmer form of the hull and longer waterline.
And of course, the engine runs whisper you hear it lapping of the waves and the sighing of the wind. You can give infinitely "gas".
The operation of the electric motor is similar to that of a classic type outboard. But, here you do not need to pull the starter rope until you gasps.
The height of the screw and the tiller are adjustable and you can choose a long or a short tail. The battery has a charge indicator.
Interesting accessory is the backup battery, which remains for months charged. Depending on whether you are using a 206 W or 566 W charger, the charging time is less than ten hours, or less than four hours.
All these qualities make the Electric Torqeedo Travel is an ideal solution for maneuvering small boats, fishing boats and boats for day trips. And the reason why electric Torqeedo motors never want to go back to petrol models.
He is also very useful as an auxiliary or backup engine. He allows easy storage without gasoline odors.
Torqeedo has already won numerous awards at several international boat shows: the Innovation Award at the Mets in Amsterdam, the boat show Innovation in Amsterdam, IBEX Innovation Award in Miami, "Grand Prix Innovation "at the Salon Nautique de Paris".
In the category "Best for Nature" the electric powerboat Tender 06e powered by Deep Blue is the Best of Boats Award Winner 2014.
