Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

    Ben,
    It strikes me as a great idea and apparently well executed.
    Happy New Year!

    Good. But pricey.

    Thanks for that fun link explaining electric, diesel, gas horsepower versus torque.
    Now I understand why the Ford Lehman agriculture tractor diesel engine in my trawler works so well.

    ahh, finally an answer to not having to row the air home from Stonington to Swan’s Island when i’m becalmed on the windsurfer!

    Is there anyway to lock this to the dinhy when I leave the dink at the dinghy dock?

    Don’t know how I missed it, but good news that the Temo 450 does have a 5 LED state of charge indicator right on the control handle. I also just spoke over Zoom with Alexandre Seux and it sounds like Temo is doing pretty well as a new product in tough times, plus development work is ongoing.

    Very cool technology!

    Love to see these advancements in battery-powered propulsion…looking like good news overall for the future of personal power.

    Hopefully, the price will continue to come down as we see more and more tech headed in this direction!
