    I'm sure that Vision Marine Technologies had reached out to multiple cat builders to do this proof-of-concept, but for whatever reason the other cat companies was either too busy because of timelines or what, Rey saw a glimpse of the future in his project to help build an electric-powered catamaran boat...another testament that Rey was way ahead of his time..

    I am a big fan of EV's. My wife owns a Tesla. A car takes very little power to cruise down the highway. I recall around 25hp to hold a steady speed. A boat takes a lot of power to cruise at even 60 mph. I assume the range will be very, very low on an electric boat. Adding more heavy batteries for range will not be the answer. In a short run the torque of electric motors on a boat should be good in a Shootout event. The technology is not there yet for large electric boats. Things are changing fast in the EV world. Look at Dodge announcing the gas muscle car is no longer after 2024.

    Money. Bring lots of it.

    Beautiful rig. Wonder why they went outboard. I guess it's easier to package? I would think getting the weight of the motors forward would be beneficial, and use drives. But sure they've thought aboot it more than me. Guess that area is for the batteries. Crazy what people are coming up with these days.

    Post #2 .. Poor Maytags on spin cycle can barely go fast enough .. to get the hull almost to the point where it's ready to belch the water out of the tunnel ..

    Mid-term's are almost here ... we won't have to put up with all this Blunder Buck Butter / AOCtard garbage much longer ...

    Wasn’t Shaun Torennte involved in this, when announced, a while back?
    I'd rather be competitive w/junk I built in my garage than win w/stuff I bought.


    I refuse to allow common sense to interfere w/my boat buying decisions.

    Leave the battery’s in it and add a hydrogen cell to power the electric engines. Or better yet change up to hydrogen engines and ditch the batts. Then you might have a viable project with a realistic range that would actually do as intended. A pure EV boat will always be looking for its next stop to recharge every two hours. Jm2cts
