Electric Sportboat - Clean Water Power
Saturday, May 21, 2011
Location: O'Connell Volvo, Alameda, CA
One of our local enthusiasts has been concerned about the impact of gasoline power on the recreational lakes. With his own efforts, Scott Ruck has prototyped an all-electric sportboat for use with water sports and lake cruising.
Scott will be sharing with us his adventures with converting this outboard motor to electric, finding and installing a lithium battery pack and then tuning this vehicle for best performance as a clean all-electric recreation vehicle.
Thanks to our host, Mike O'Connell, we will also be viewing the current selection of Zap electric cars, which are available for sale.
electric speed boat and other EVs will be on display in the back parking lot after the meeting.
