Testing our Cheap Electric Outboard for the First Time! | ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵

In this video we test our brand new 12v Electric Outboard, order an all-singing, all-dancing VHF radio and take you on a drone flight above England. We are super happy with our Bison 68 lbs thrust Electric Outboard (a.k.a. Trolling Motor) and we have been recharging the batteries we use to power it with a small flexible solar panel. We will have much more about this in future videos: we have done some testing of bollard pull, speed, Ah consumption etc. and are experimenting with powering this electric outboard engine with a tiny Lithium-Ion battery pack... (Kind of like having a Torqeedo without the price tag!) Here's an Amazon link to the electric outboard we bought: https://fave.co/2KVKp0A Subscribe to our channel for more updates! ⛵ Sailing Britaly ⛵ brings you the sailing shenanigans of Chris (British), Rossella (Italian), and baby Emma (Britalian) as we sail our 1992 Bavaria 350.

Thank you for making a sailing channel that's real! Most of them seem to be as much about boobs as boats. Boobs are great and all, but it's a bit ridiculous.

We installed the SH 2200 last year, its a great flexible radio. The volumn on ours gets poor after about 3/4 on, how is yours towards full volumn? Thinkwe will need to install auxillary speaker

Just been looking up that your electric outboard is more thrust than a Torqueedo Travel 1003. Look forward to the reviews and tips on batteries as my Yamaha 2.5F drives me nuts every year as carb needs so much Fettling and costs a fortune to fix. Andy UK

I cut the shaft down on my electric outboard very easy to do and a lot more comfortable to use.

Have you seen my own boat Stimmaren as well? Considered a trip "on the cut" with her but she is little to wide... (8'4")
- Then Marguerite is more suitable but needs good weather! :-D

Emma steals the show again! Seeing your happy baby always seems to trigger happy memories of when my boys were that age. Human nature I guess. Thanks for that as much as the sailboat subjects!

Good choice for VHF I have same model and it is great. Interested to see motor review showing top speed and with dinghy loaded a bit. I have a 2.5hp four stroke but would like to go electric if it would get me out to my mooring,which is about half a mile from marina. Can't afford a Torqueedo... Emma is such a laugh... All the best.

Hi, yes I think it is probably fine for short journeys in calm waters but getting from marina to my mooring in Emsworth is about a mile so I'm not sure it would be man enough or the battery would weigh a ton...

yes. less background music. I must say the wife and I are giddy w/ the prospect of watching Emma grow up on the sailboat!

I installed two Standard Horizon Quantum GX6000's in 2016 and I am delighted with their quality and performance. Do you have or are you considering installing a SSB unit? I don't have a Sat phone so I use a Pactor modem and SailMail to send and receive emails while offshore. SSB has also saved my sanity on long solo passages when it was the only way I could make radio contact with another living soul. A man in India actually took the time to play me a game of checkers over SSB. It took a few days to play a game but it is hard to describe how much it meant to me at the time.

Another awesome video. I was not expecting the electric motor to work as good as that. Couple of suggestions if you get a chance is Upnor castle, my dad works there and it’s very pretty and good view of the marina and Chatham dockyard distillery if you like gin! Drone footage was awesome I’m hoping to get some footage myself at that abandoned pier next to you if I get permission for my main YouTube channel! Keep the videos coming. Alastair and Kayleigh

There is Emma the cutest baby on YouTube. At least I think so. Looks like fair weather there time to break out the sails even if it is a day trip.

I haven't missed a vid. Last time I commented Emma was just announced. You guys have gone a long way since, for that my respect. Knowing your engineering background i know you had all the outboard specifications researched and now you may be planning to test it or modify it. I would love to see the full extent of your research. Specially the cost vs value you always do. Keep up the good work... my outboard is pretty much brand new but I don't like it much. Very heavy and awkward to place on the rails. Currently I have excess power and wondering how many watts I would have to reserve for that type of gimmick. Regards from NZ

Love the 12v motor idea. Seems wise.. no more Jerry cans on deck, no cleaning carbs!

I use a 55 lb thrust to power a 17' keel boat when the winds are light. At full chap it will push us along at 3-4 knots. I'm particular, so I cut the shaft about 9" shorter to make the control unit sit just above my transom.
