Besides the conversions of the cabin cruiser and runabout that are currently underway, I have won a varied list of conversion contracts that we will complete over the next three months.

It’s been a while since the conversion was completed but at last I finally found the time to upload the video describing the process.
We are taking a 34′, 7 ton full displacement pleasure cruiser that started out as a west coast gill net boat and are right in the middle of converting it to run on a series electric drive system.
This barge is a 10′x20′ wood platform straddling a pair of marine plywood-fibreglass-epoxy composite pontoons, with aluminum hand railings in the corners. At the stern is an aluminum quick release latch system to connect the barge to a dedicated pusher motor vessel when in operation. The main feature of the barge is a 5′x5′x8′ underwater aluminum cage [..]
This project was precipitated by my buying a vintage wooden runabout a few years ago, right when I first started to get interested in electric vehicles.
