>>> SV Green – electric conversion

Kevin Shepherd announced (on the Electric Boats mailing list) the re-launch of his 28′ Great Dane sailboat after repowering with a Soloman ST37 3 phase motor running at 144VDC.

Looks like it went pretty quickly… started in September of 2006 and launched at the end of January 2007.

He’s got pictures of the components and the process, along with some initial data from the sea-trial.

Worth a look for the electric power aficionados.
