Tomorrow (Sunday, July 29) there will be an event in Seattle to announce proposed federal incentives for electric primary propulsion for boats (not trolling motors). My company Pure Watercraft is making electric outboard motors that propel a boat like a 40 HP gas outboard does. Bass pro Troy Lindner won a tournament in San Diego with our system on a 16' Lund (vs. traditional bass boats with 200-250 HP gas outboards) and set a record for San Vicente that still stands, a year later. He also came to Seattle and fished Lake Washington and Lake Union.
If anyone in this group would like to support us by showing up and telling people how powerful, quiet electric motors would impact the fishing world, I'd appreciate it. Please let me know by sending me a private message here.
