I'll keep my 5 yr old Torqeedo. Can't wait to go sailing! 15C in Toronto today. My Torqeedo batteries have improved in performance over the years I've owned them. Just getting worked in.
Don't hear many people combining sail with e power, but they compliment each other incredibly. It is sort of like pedal assisting an ebike, except sailing doesn't require effort either. Amazing range increase when the motor is barely running and the sail is up. Even in the lighest of breezes. The sensation is of sailing, since the Torqeedo is invisible, but the boat keeps moving thru the lulls and sails closer to straight into the wind. I run from morning to midnight and have NEVER drained both batteries in one day.
Genco marine in To. have a lightly used one sitting in their showroom, an 801 24v. Make 'em an offer. 416-504-2891
I have the 401 12v which moves my 17' double ended sprit rigged, rowing and sailing skiff at hull speed.
