1. The Marketplace Forums can be useful for members who know one another well from forum discussions and offline communications and wish to post boatbuilding tools, drafting tools, molds and tooling, and other professional equipment for sale or trade. However, caution and good judgement should always be used. Especially when considering any business with anyone not already well known to you and trusted, due diligence must be used to confirm details and identity and be sure the transaction is safe before any money or property changes hands. Always use good judgement and perform due dilligence and follow these guidelines.

    I have a 14 ft O'Day Javelin, converted to electric with a 14 x 17 three blade prop at 400RPM. The boat uses a 3/4 horsepower 24 VDC PM motor, belt drive reduction, with two group 27 12 volt deep cycle marine lead-acid batteries in series. I can cruise at 5 MPH with full 24 volts (full speed) for about 4 hours with this setup.

    The boats you have pictured may use less power, and with what batteries? So the cruising time they estimate may be realistic.
