Needed saltwater propulsion

Would a 12 volt 35 amp hr battery be sufficient for any length of time for two thrusters on ocean powering a 300lb kayak?

Hi @Hobie1Kenobe ,

Here is a simple battery calculator we developed to estimate endurance: Battery Calculator (Beta)

I plugged in 12V and 35 Ah and came out to 35 min at full power with 2 T200 thrusters (70 min for one). We don’t have a calculator for hull shape/weight dynamics but it should move you anywhere between 1-3 kts.

That’s poor 35 mins pushing 375 lbs I don’t think so

Thank You ,
Scott French
