@guldsteen Here’s a few pics:

This was my older board so a few things have changed, such as the thickness of the epoxy as the coils got too hot, the electronics box has a battery % display and a few other minor adjustments.

Sorry for the late reply.

Didn’t one member here fry his motor by sealing it all in with epoxy? He even tried to use like 50% copper dust film for better thermals but found it to be tens of times less inefficient than just plain water cooling (that 1-2 liters per minute)?

No problem with the cooling :slight_smile:

Slow improvement with practice.

Hi everyone! I’m on my way home after a magical two day boat show with only electric and hybrid boats. It was hosted by the Swedish maritime museum in Stockholm and its been covered by national media in Sweden.

I brought both my foils v1and v2 and my hybrid boat. I did demo runs both days and it was a success.

I also had the chance to meet with true pioneers Candela Speed boats and we did a all electric foiling run together. Pure magic :slight_smile:

More pictures and videos to come.

This candela thingy is super amazing. Saw their progress few years back and was amazed on how mobile and stable their mechanisms are!
