Electric outboard motor

Electric outboard motor

Its a 24 volt, 50 amp outboard. I have tried it with pairs of car batteries in series, but even though they may be rated at 30 amp hours, you won't get that at 50 amps. I managed to get half an hour of use out of it but the batteries were totally dead at the end.

So I am now on the lookout for a pair of 12V deep cycle batteries which I can use with this motor.

I have used it with my swanston snug fiberglass boat, which is about 2.5 metres long. The motor is fine when it runs, the boat moves along very well.
