Electric drives are great for small and maybe even big boats and even more so in the near future. If you can get or have a golfcart motor I would use it. I am not as sure that I would buy a motor and batteries unless just a trolling motor and a couple batteries where there is not a lot of money involved. It is my understanding that the new batteries will be much higher voltage and so will the motors they run. I am not sure that what I am saying here is true but maybe just something to think about? I think electric is going to very practical for sailboat auxiliaries in the not to distant future as long as you spend most nights in a marina where you can charge batteries or use the motor very little. If you are going off cruising they probably won't work unless you want to listen to a generator run all night.
The future is almost here. Doug
