Good to know. We’ve had a 1003 LS outboard with no problems for 6 years. ( for the L7) You’re using the 24 - 3500’s to an inboard?The Torpedo isn't using LFP but it does have a very good BMS to protect the pack. I have NMC on my boat with no worries.
Plenty of surplus 100% duty 7”, 8”and 9” diameter, 36v to 48v DC forklift traction motors out there that will drop into a boat any day of the week...I'm 100% going to do some sort of hybrid conversion for my next boat next year.
Like y'all I go out of Shilshole and to the start line 90% of the time. The other 5% I need the engine just do anchor (since my windlass will drain the batteries in 2 seconds).
Both of these could be easily solved with a small 2kwh battery bank and an inline electric motor between the tranny and prop.
Plus then yes, you could easily make it to the San Juans in 5kts in one day... Or appreciate the whale watching without a giant motor running (or scaring said whales).
