ODay SailboatDivided into three sections, the book starts with an overview of the author’s successes and failures while researching basic concepts. With each success, he moves ahead until you have an excellent understanding of electric propulsion for boats.

This electric boat book delves deeply into all the technical aspects of electric propulsion. However, the information remains extremely easy to understand and follow. It guides you through each phase of the required work thoroughly with detailed explanations of each step along the way.

You will not find another book that explains this subject matter so completely or in such an easily understood format. Although Charlie has limited the examples to smaller boats (20 to 23 feet), the processes can be easily modified for larger vessels.
