There is definitely more to electric boating than trolling motors. And there are now an abundance of options available much smaller than the QE2 or a military submarine.  That's right, the QE2 is electric powered and so are most non-nuclear submarines.  They are diesel-electric hybrids that run on batteries when submerged.

 

Imagine yourself out on a quiet lake, enjoying the tranquility.  Yet you are making good headway thanks to a virtually silent electric motor pushing your boat across the water.  Imagine boating without trips to the marina for fuel, without lugging gas cans and lubricating oil to the boat.  Without hard-to-start engines that spoil the mood before you start - without annual tune-ups that absorb your time.  Without all these headaches you are left with just the pleasures of boating and without the guilt of thinking about how your hobby is harming the environment.

If no power point at your the dock to recharge your boat, then consider the potential for charging your boat using solar panels or wind generation.  About 40% of your energy can come from a single 50 watt photovoltaic panel.  The more panels you have the less you have to rely on shore power.

Electric Boat Association of the Americas (EBAA)

 

Electric Boat Association of the Americas (EBAA)

 

The Electric Boat Association of the Americas is an organization of individuals with an interest in electric-powered boating. Most EBAA members reside in the United States and Canada, but the membership includes a few individuals in the Caribbean, Central and South America. We even have members in Australia and Africa. We welcome new members from anywhere in the world Since electrically propelled vessels do not put hydrocarbons in the air, do not put oil and other pollutants in the water and don't make loud noises, many EBAA members have a keen interest in the positive environmental aspects of electric propulsion. Other members simply like the idea of clean, silent, inexpensive boating. Low maintenance and reliability are appealing to all the members.

A novel way to keep those trolling batteries charged.

Inevitably, get a few electric boats together and people want to race.
