  1. The pyramid scheme that is the current form of capitalism can't "grow" unless there are more poor at the bottom.
  2. Bottom or top of hour, that is the question?
  3. Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.
  4. There is no place for LiPos on boats..... super dangerous. I think you meant lithium in general. Please do yourself a favor and look at the Firefly Carbon Foam batteries. They can be discharged much deeper than any flooded so you can have less total bank capacity but still have more useable amps. Useable amps is the end target. Or go the next step to LFP batteries and reduce the weight of your bank by 70% for the same useable capacity. Quality solar controllers are like $120.
  5. You can also buy a large car battery from Torqeedo built by BMW. Still, most boats do not have 10kWh+ packs.
  6. Ah, either way..... who wants a new 30ft'er with an aluminum rig?
  7. Tesla currently uses an NCA chemistry (that’s lithium-nickel-cobalt-aluminum), while lithium-nickel-manganese-cobalt (NMC) chemistries are common across the rest of the EV industry. I don't know of ONE person who used an old Tesla battery on a boat. I certainly wouldn't. LFP (lithium iron phosphate) is a safe chemistry and by far the type most used on boats.
  8. But these are not "series" boats.... its a box rule like the Proto Minis, which use carbon rigs. It's hard to find a race boat does NOT use a carbon rig.
  9. Isn't the Editor still flicking assholes who spread lies and misinformation regarding COVID?
  10. Wasn't that infrastructure for Canadian oil... just passing through the USA?
  11. Fucking LIES LIES LIES you fucking shill or if you're not getting paid then you are one person who needs a trustee to run their life, not Brittney.
  12. Misinformation...... unless you're using dangerous LIPOs, which no one really does.
