electric outboard

Recommended Posts

ok so i know i'm swearing lol

but i have a little rib with an electric outboard on it

i will say it's love;y in the fact of it is silent

and when we went the other side of beccles bridge where there wasn't any other traffic it was so quiet and lovely

the only trouble is they do 4mph max

so it took us a long time to do anything and if the tide turns you could be going backwards if not careful lol

i noticed the prop is really small with 2 blades

can they be swapped for a bigger prop?

would this make much difference?

the outboard i have is towards the top in size i did enquire if i got a bigger outboard would it make much dif on the speed and was told about 1-2 mph lol

brill invention but they need to make them quicker

thanks steve :)

Swinging a larger prop, whilst it may, and I stess may give you a bit more speed but at the expense of an already limited duration, and you cant just pour more electricity into a battery when it runs out. My personal view is that you should cotact the manufacturer for advice on this.
