If you don't mind me asking, how did yall afford a 1m dollar sailboat for this? I've been interested in doing this for a long time but It seems out of reach, these sailboats are way more expensive than my cigarette boat.

Now you just need to partner with a company like eFoy, and there should be no more use for fossil fuel propulsion. I am proud to know you are making an effort in installing Oceanvolt. However, you might want to plan that installation together with a systems engineer not associated with Oceanvolt. Why? You might wonder. The reason has to do with things like propulsion battery bank size, isolation transformers, balanced loads, house loads, efficient DC to DC conversion, etc. For me the biggest problem with going from an engine to a motor is hot water. Many marine hot water tanks use heat from the Diesel engines to heat water. Do you turn on the generator to heat water or do you use 10-kWh from the batteries to heat water? Ideally there would be a mini heat pump hot water tank using only 3-kWh. Oceanvolt is tangentially interested in solving some of these issues for you as you are about to discover. There is nothing wrong with Oceanvolt products as far as I can tell, but they are a vessel propulsion company that uses electricity to do it, and though they have solved some of these issues, there are other remaining issues still without an optimal approach through no fault of their own. Some of the system integrators have good approaches to some of these issues, but there are not that many with a truly universal vision of how to integrate and install such systems, and on top of this you will need good tradesmen with the actual installation. There are many installers, but there are few OCD electrical installers able to make it look beyond neat and to make it safe. Take a look at a around 0:50:

@jfbeam hello. Today you can cook on an electric boat with an electric induction stove and an electrical convection oven. Moreover, it should be possible to use a heat pump hot water tank to provide hot water. The problem in my opinion is not so much a problem of energy as it is one of space. Why would they want to do this? Think of the many places they have travelled. Gas and Diesel are not always easy to obtain, and they are subject to local island fossil fuel prices. From an energy perspective, if they will be installing two Oceanvolt motors, when under sail they should easily regain over 2-kWh every hour under light wind condition (7.5-knots per hour). This means that if they have sufficient battery storage space that they could obtain just from sailing at least 48-kWh per day with light winds, and with winds around 10-knots per hour they could be storing around 5-kWh per hour. Take a look at the hydrogeneration chart at the bottom of this page: Storing 48-kWh requires a larger battery bank than the one proposed by Oceanvolt; however, when under anchor, it will provide sufficient house load energy for several days. A three kW-solar system should have no problem in topping it off on a daily basis. A 48-kWh battery storage system would work both for house loads and propulsion. However, boats have many devices on 12-volts. Therefore, one idea would be to have a large 48-battery bank for propulsion and AC house loads, and for devices requiring 12-volts a DC to DC converter from the main battery bank could do this. Moreover, some of these 12-volt systems require sort of a UPS system; therefore, a second 12-volt battery bank could do this. The more interesting question would be how much energy would they need to move forward at 4-knots per hour? This might provide some further information on how large a battery bank they might need both for house loads and for propulsion when there is no wind. I believe about 33% of the time there is no wind, and there are area and times of the year where and when this is more pronounced. Suppose, they require 4-kWh to move forward at 4-knots for 30-hours in a cloudy climate with no wind. This means they would require 120 kWh of energy. Suppose they use 20-kWh for house loads including hot water, and they use 15-kWh for 12-volt devices. They would require 155-kWh for these 30-hours. A 3-kW solar system will provide a maximum of 12-kWh per day. Suppose the solar system manages to produce 0-kWh during these 30-hours. Where are they going to obtain energy? They could use a DC generator able to keep the batteries topped off directly without an inverter. If they have a 48-kWh battery, they can draw go as low as a 20% DOD and as high as 90%. This provides a working range of 70% from the 48-kWh battery bank. This is 33.6-kWh. At 4-kWh for propulsion they will need restarting the DC generator every 8-hours. However, they, also, have about 1.2-kWh each hour for house loads and 12-volt devices. This means restarting the generator every 7-hours. This would be the most difficult 30-hours from an energy perspective that I would expect. The rest of the time they can sail and regenerate energy, and while under anchor the solar system should keep up with daily energy demands. Many of the energy hungry devices for 12-volts would be shutoff while under anchor.

Heat is a big issue for "off grid" systems. There's nothing more off grid than a boat. I applaud their goal of _zero_ emissions, but I'd still want gas for cooking and heat. (it's not like they're going to put a pellet furnace on the boat.)

Gonna need a backup generator. The electrics on yer boat, especially the water maker will suck the batteries down fast. And if you want to motor any distance at all, you will need a ton of batteries. which will weigh the boat down,

I'm still curious as to why we never got hard data from the Oceanvolt Gunboat 55. The lack of that information makes me think that the numbers had to be way less than estimated. But I am really curious. It also still never make sense to me to turn your engine prop into a Regen. You need a dedicated regen prop in the design. It could even lift out of the water when not in use. Complex topic. I'll be looking forward to more.

Really glad to see you exploring emissions free sailing - but I hope you are also planning to account for the embodied emissions in the new kit - it's not often that the best of the best 'performance' equipment is really better for the planet - there's so much energy and resource that goes into making performance kit. Obviously using wind to move is better than fossil fuels, but once you've got an electric motor using wind an extra (?) 5% of the time probably doesn't avoid that many emissions, and your performance sails might use up more resource to make than they save over the course of their lifetime? Interesting question to explore, I hope... Keep up the great progress!
