  • Hello What is the difference between the propulsive power and thrust?

    According to Torqeedo,

    "Power rating: propulsive power (expressed in HP or watts)  
    Like the manufacturers of commercial ships, we always refer to the propulsive power of our drive systems, i.e. the power that is actually delivered to propel the boat taking into account all losses, including those associated with the propeller. Propulsive power can be used to compare all motors with each other.  

    Power rating: static thrust (expressed in lbs or lbf)
    Static thrust says something about the motor's ability to get the boat from a standstill up to a very slow speed. It says nothing about the motor's ability to propel the boat at normal speed – it is therefore unsuitable as an indication of power."

    Also this article from Torqeedo contains a lot of good info in regards to motor power ratings

  • If used on an 18' long Avalon pontoon boat could you pull a tube with kids at a good rate of speed

    There are a lot of variables involved (total boat weight, environmental conditions, etc) but if you can do it with a 20hp gasoling outboard then it is possible that you could with the Cruise 10.0.  Do keep in mind that with four Power 26-104 batteries, according to Torqeedo, you will have approxiximately 48 minutes* of full throttle operation.
    * Depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.

  • Princecraft Brio17' can be bought with a torqueedo 4.0 is that engines powerful enough to pull a tube with kids?

    According to Torqeedo, the Cruise 4.0 speed tops out at 7.0 knots*.  So given that most tubes require significantly greater speed it is doubtful that a Cruise 4.0 would be sufficient.
    * Depends on type of boat, load, propeller and conditions. Speed and range indications do not represent a legal guarantee.

  • I'm looking for a remote control dingy that I can operate from 300 feet away. Do you know of such a product?

    Thanks for the question but I am not aware of a remote control dinghy.  Sound interesting I suppose.

  • Are there any outboard options with Jet Drive? I run a boat on rivers and need a jet drive function to protect the propellor. Any info is appreciated.

    Torqeedo does not currently have a Jet Drive option for their electric outboards.

  • Does this include steering cables? Length? Steering box? Throttle cables and controls? Side or center mount and length?

    The following items are inclued with the Remote version of Torqeedo's Cruise 10.0 Electric Outboard: Throttle with integrated information display including data cable (5m), magnetic kill switch, 70 mm2 battery cable with main switch (4.5m), connecting rod for remote steering, standard prop v22/p10k, and sacrificial anodes (Al).  The details of the installation are in the Cruise 10.0 User Manual with connection instructions beginning on page 76.

    Regarding the steering, you will need to provide all of the steering components besides the connecting rod assembly (this is shown in the User Manual).
