5Kw Sailboat Kit12/05/2016, 08:39
I installed a 5 kw sailboat kit on my Oday 280 last year. It's been life-changing. I can't begin to tell you how much I enjoy it.

I couldn’t be happier. The transmission was very easy to install on my old engine mounts and made mounting the motor a breeze. The coupling lined up beautifully and knowing it allows some play is just extra peace of mind. It’s a very well engineered system.
We went sailing this weekend using the kit you programmed and the system was a dream to use compared to the clunky old diesel. I’m very happy with the new electric drive.

I absolutely love the propulsion system. It is clean, quiet, reliable and instantly available.
Best Wishes, and thanks for your support.
Installed on a Herreschoff Rozinante.

Again thank you for a very high quality product and all of your help... Very exciting to have the motor move the boat forward and backward!...Congratulations on a well engineered system.

I just launched my 1976 Bayliner Buccaneer sailboat for its third season with the Thunderstruck sailboat kit and it has been super good. I spent half the money I would have spent repowering with diesel like it was. The other guys jack around starting and maintaining outboards and I just flip the switch. My wife was skeptical at first...not all my projects go this well...but now she is a believer. I'm looking at the Thunderstruck site now pondering an electric car project...yup, wife not a believer on this one...yet.

I converted my C&C 27 from an Atomic 4 (seized-up) to electric a few months ago. I used a 5KW kit from ThunderStruck and also used their mounting plate, 2 to 1 gear and coupler. It works beautifully.
