For this installation we kept the propeller and shaft, after the maiden voyage the old bearing vibrated and was replaced with a new one. 

The battery bank is: 8 Crown 6 volt golf cart batteries in series making it a 48 volt bank with 220 amp hours

On our second sea trial voyage it was a beautiful sunny winter day in Vancouver and in no time we were cruising at 5 knots with ¾ throttle, smooth quiet and vibration free.

Here are some of the photos we took during the transformation.
