Can I mount solar panels to extend my range?

You can add solar panels to your boat and integrate them with our system in the future as an option. However, the limited surface area on a boat, plus the additional weight of the panels may reduce the effectiveness of adding solar panels. Therefore, for optimal speed and range, we recommend that one use land-based

Will the extra torque damage my stern drive? Can I keep the same propeller?

Krensen’s computerized engine controller can be set with parameters that match the stern drive’s torque ratings. Retaining the existing propeller is most likely an option, as the computerized engine controller and electric motor can be selected to match rpm and torque. However, changing the propeller may be desirable in order to achieve increased operational efficiency.

How far can I go?

This is fully dependent on the boat and the size of the system that you put in it. However, with today’s battery technology you can expect between 25 to 50 nautical miles at a planing hull speed. At a slower speed, below hull speed (approximately 5 knots for a 25-footer), this range can be quadrupled.

How reliable are electric propulsion systems?

Electric propulsions systems are highly reliable. The reason for this is the simplicity of an electric motor linked to our marine electric management system. Simply put, our system has four moving parts, whilst on average a combustion engine has over 2000 parts. This explains how Krensen® can achieve a highly reliable and robust system.
