All these electric cars and whatever else is all good great and fine I guess, my thoughts about all of it is how do we all plug in our chargers for these and expect the electric grid to be able to supply the demand for all that! Heck we can barely keep our homes all powered up now!

We go adding these chargers that can fast charge batteries like some of this stuff is going to need, they are going to use lots of amps. Then there is the issue with what is fast charge, time wise? It's not going to be like just 15-20 minutes... If it was the rate of electricity consumption would sure enough draw down the grid...

I think there is some neat technology for all this stuff, but it has lots of growing pains yet to deal with, one of which is how do you charge back up and in a timely fashion and not requiring 30 amps of 220 - 3 phase power...

Then, there is the marketing of these new products, it will be interesting to see just how much all this is going to cost for those of you that can afford them. I already exclude myself. Your going to need to move the decimal point over to the right and add another zero to add enough electric power at your house in order to get the needed chargers and safety equipment for all this... Then your going to want the portable charger so when you go to the lake that your staying for a week.

I wish they would actually make enough motors for you to buy first. I went to my local Basscat dealer and he can’t get any Pro XS or Sho motors right now for re-power customers. I had cash in hand and he can’t get motors from either supplier right now.

I can see it now, has a 200 mile range at a 1/3 throttle but at full throttle you will get maybe 50 if you're lucky! How is the charging station infrastructure going on the road let alone on the water lol. You're lucky if you can get gas on the water, electricity will be a new frontier. Won't see it be relevant unless there is a significant improvement in current battery technology

You're gonna need a really big, wide boat to have room for the solar panels and wind generators, so you can get back to the ramp. IslandJim

Might as well post the link to the v10, not like I’ll ever be able to afford one, also looks like a small electric is new.
