EP Carry provides lightweight propulsion
PropEle Electric Boat Motors’ EP Carry is in full production after being launched last year.
The electric outboard has been designed to provide lightweight, efficient and simple-to-use propulsion.
It is suitable for dinghies, tenders, small rowing and other craft under 13ft and 600lbs.
“I originally developed the EP Carry system to protect my family from harmful carbon monoxide fumes while we were enjoying our time on the water,” said Joe Grez, founder, PropEle. “I wanted a system that provided clean, safe and efficient electric power, with an elegant design that could be hand carried.”
He added: “I discovered that an electric solution enhances your boating experience by removing the hassles, fumes, emissions and noise of gas motors.”
The EP Carry’s has a brushless motor that provides 220 watts of power. It has a patented water-lubricated gear system that requires no maintenance.
Owners of the EP Carry can enjoy safe shallow-water operation due to its design features including a high-aspect ratio and slow-turning prop design, low-force grounding kick-up, a protected skeg and an electronic shear pin.
The motor is available in three shaft lengths – mini, standard/short and long and is solar-ready with a variety of 24-volt panels available to fit the needs of each owner.
The engine is designed to deliver long runtime for multiple ship-to-shore trips with most small boats able to achieve 3.5 to 4.2 knots with a range of 3-6 miles per charge.
It weighs 14lbs and is sold with a 7lb buoyant battery pack.
