So, what are the problems? Well cooling for the motor is the only real issue at this point. Initially getting the right prop pitch was a problem, but that's been resolved. The motor, which is designed to be air cooled is getting warmer than Dan would like when he runs the set-up with the stock motor cover on. Running the drive as shown with the cover off is no problem and the electric motor cools nicely. So, what's he going to do about this little design issue? More innovation. He removed the standard impeller water pump from the mid-section of the motor and has installed a bilge pump motor in its place. The white hose you see at the lower end of the drive motor is routed up through the old engine exhaust cavity and is ultimately going to be connected to a coil of copper pipe that will be wrapped around the motor housing. It in turn will self-drain back down through the drive leg into the lake. Sounds like a plan to me. About the only question I have on that is the duty cycle for the bilge pump motor...... Not sure its rated for continuous duty. Anyhow, nicely done Dan, and congratulations on your award. Look out Torqeedo!
