And now for the Electric outboard

I had to check that I had the sound turned on for this clip.

Latest News | ReGen Hybrid Electric Marine Power

I love the sound of a big two stroke in the mornings, this might take some getting used to.

There isn't any sound! If I post a video of my Tohatsu 2 stroke the same way it's just as quiet - amazing!!

Is "Etecishness" a word? Lol!
And is that just because it's White?

It was once someone else used it, so thanks

I had a pair of Etec 90s. The engine looks almost identical....

Be interesting to know the weight of the boat, before and after the batteries are installed.

press release says 30 min water skiing - circa 25 knots - gives a range of 12 miles, OK 15 is you don't have to pull a skier out. not exactly long distance cruising.

Like with cars, great idea, not fully functional and wont be till
a) we improve battery capacity
b) get a cost effective fuel cell
