    Hello, gentlemen. My name is Joel, and I live in the UK with my family. I am a boat builder, although at present, i work as a woodwork tutor with people who have received brain injuries. I have built quite a few boats, from canoes to a 31ft catamaran. I am boat less at present. I am thinking about buying a restoration project, and possibly installing electric propulsion to replace the 2 diesel engines which are reportedly on their last leg. I know very little about electric propulsion, so will be asking lots of questions soon!:D
    Best Regards
    Joel
