Our Electric Powered Boat is Undergoing Field Trials
One mission per week for a period of 1.25 years. Recording. analyzing, and presenting the data in visual form on this website. Payload weight, GPS track, speed, battery consumption throughout the entire route, time to recharge, cost of recharge, and a 1-time baseline data collection of the same experiment reproduced using twin 20 HP gasoline motors for electric vs petrol outboard propulsion system comparison.
Measured by executing one mission per week for a period of 1.25 years and computing the ratio of missions accomplished over the number of missions aborted or failed.
A log of all repairs will be recorded and presented in visual form.
Cost Benefit Analysis
A cost benefit analysis will be performed and presented graphically comparing gasoline vs electric twin-20 HP performance, reliability, and maintenance costs published online.
