Your boat is one big inspiration. Is really good see a lot of months of work in water, give us a gratification of free sailing.

Wolf, my friend. I saw your eletric motor, and Tanenui have 1 ton or more, he works well?

Hi Rogerio,

well that is all that's allowed on that lake. The motor is a 24V, 1kW model and works OK until force 4-5. Runtime in calm conditions is 4-5h with 2x90Ah 12V Batteries pushing the boat at 3 knots. In a force 4 I need to go full power which means empty batteries after 30-45 minutes. But hey, it's a sailboat...
