Sorry I've been MIA for a few days but I'm at the Miami Boat Show this week and its been one press conference and meeting after another. One of the more intriguing little adventures this week was provided by our friends at Torqeedo. I got a chance to drive the boat shown below with my firend and colleague Ben Ellison from over at the Panbo website. (www.panbo.com)
So between Ben and myself we're looking at almost 400 lbs. Guess what, we were able to get this boat up on a plane! Full on electric propulsion and we topped out at nearly 14 mph.
The boat is equipped with four of Torqeedo's new Lithium ION batteries that can provide power at full throttle for about two hours of run time. At slower speeds the actual run time goes up considerably.
