Thanks for your input Boppa. I was wondering, how do I compare to a petrol outboard. I want to run a 20HP petrol on this boat to compare but I don't want to own a 20HP petrol motor.

Yes we did weigh it.
As originally made, 114kg .
With the second pontoon width added, 130kg.
Golden Motor weight is 50kg.
Lithium batteries, 48v (16 cells) x 100Ah-B, plus box, 72kg

The Golden Motor is 10kW. At 52v x 189A = 9828W. My conversion makes 10kW to be 13.4HP. But they say it has the performance of a 20HP petrol.
