Skiss (= sketch is Swedish) a 1990 NZ classic 45' x 11' x 9' wood epoxy 3/4 sloop with running back-stays. This boat has been refurbished and maintained over the years. I named this group electric yacht as I replaced the diesel engine with an electric motor / lithium batteries last year. The yacht is silent with no smoke, no smell. A petrol generator supplies 12v to the house batteries, 48v to the propulsion batteries and 240v.
Other boat owners are welcome to join.
