Electric engine

Has anyone converted to an electric engine.  Would be interested in your research ... manufacturers, prices, DIY ... etc.  Only used to motor in and out of slip on lake.  Minimal battery configuration needed.  Thanks !

Have not, although I'm intrigued (we power our dingy with a Torqeedo outboard charged from our solar panels -- no more gasoline on board!).  However, here's a few resources I've noticed recently:
Good Old Boat had a recent issue that was devoted to conversions to electric.  https://goodoldboat.com/shop/back-issues/2022-back-issues/2022-143-march-april-2022/
They also have a free article on their site, at https://goodoldboat.com/epower/

Have not done significant research yet but have been following electric conversion discussions.  I am looking at some C36's but not purchased one yet.  Keeping this very high on my list of possible projects.  One vendor I have bookmarked is electricyacht.com.
