I did not understand you. Do you want to use a generator in place of motor?

Thanks Shahriar Tanveer for reply

What I mean is not to use batteries we can use electric generator unit in this way we can use bigger electric motor to get more HP and we can get many advantages on this way.

thanks again

Are you trying to change a gas motor for an electric? The lower unit is rated for a maximum power regardless of whether it is gas or electric.

Mortaz: Do you mean that you want to use an electric motor to drive the boat and a generator to provide electricity for the electric motor? That arrangement will work, but it is not an ideal way to do it. The generator must have some thing to turn it. A gasoline or diesel motor no doubt. The gasoline motor that turns the generator will have to be more powerful than the outboard motor that you might use instead. That is because there is a loss of efficency in transferring gas power to electric output and then more losses when the electric output is used to run the electric drive motor.

Tell us more about the boat that you wish to power and perhaps someone can give suggestions.
