Re: small electric outboard engine? Some ideas...

Thanks very much Thom. I already have a link to Minn Kota on the Micro-Sailboat Web site. The problem for my tiny boat is one of weight and space. There doesn't seem to be anything on the market which is viable for really small craft.

I have a friend who makes model aircraft and he uses very efficient minute electic motors with small re-chargeable batteries. It's astonishing how efficient these tiny motors are.

When will someone come up with a really lightweight outboard engine, preferably with an integral battery?

I'm appreciative of the information you have supplied re. the charging process. I'll certainly have a look at that in more depth.

Thanks again,
PS. By the way, my small boat Web sites have been combined. See the URL.
