Hello Sailors!
I have 3 boats, ran into a snag with the brand new motor. The motor is perfect and broke in. 4 hrs. I need an electric start for myself.
Transferable 5 year warranty, started 09/2019. 61 lbs. Propane. Neat motor, zero fuel maintenance, quieter and lower emissions. $1800.

I have been looking into electric motors. I saw a 8hp electric online for $600. Is this possible and what kind of battery bank do I need to get for 2 - 4 hours power?

Great site.
