    I am considering replacing my old 4hp gas engine with a Torqeedo Electric engine. Does anyone have any experience with these engines on a J24? On Long Island Sound?
    My use is only in and out of the Harbor, about 15 mins each way.

    One of our crew has one on a Catalina 22, which is not a slippery boat. Works fine for getting off the dock and a few miles home when the wind dies. The Cat 22 ain't much of a drifter. You may want to check out the Elco electrics too.
