The motor
OwnerMichael Andreae
LocationToronto, Ontario Canada map
Vehicle1972 Peterborough Boat
This was an old boat I got to try out converting
things to electric. I really want to get some
property on the water but first I had to make
sure I could do it without burning excessive
amounts of gas...
Motor 3-Phase AC
I ordered the 10kW motor, wiring harness, and
controller for an EV car conversion from Green
Motor Tech,, and then put it
into the boat. It seems to have worked
surprisingly well.
DrivetrainI replaced the 55 HP Johnson Seahorse 2 stroke
outboard engine with an electric motor I ordered
from Alibaba. My cousin build an adapter plate
and we JB welded a coupler onto the motor.
From what I can tell it's UK Easy Power, or
Enpower. I got it from Alibaba along with the
Batteries8, 12.00 Volt, Lead-Acid, Gel
I got them used from a guy who strips down
wheelchairs. One was bad which kept the speed
down but I got a replacement which should work
better... I'll update after I try it out
System Voltage96 Volts
12v chargers. I have to change the batteries
from series to parallel to charge. I'm working
on a better Lithium battery pack so this is
Top SpeedI'll update once I get the batteries working
AccelerationAwesome, for what it is
Range1000' ish so far...
Seating CapacityWell.... It's got a board screwed down over the
batteries for bench seating....
Conversion TimeAbout 2 or 3 days of my time, but my cousin cut
the adapter plate which took a while.
Conversion Cost$5500 for everything (including gas to drive the
boat from where I bought it).
