Season 2 with Torqeedo 1003L an CP 19II.  Did get remote throttle, but not yet installed.  The App works great on iPhone for seeing battery range on real time chart.

New battery was just launched with 2x life, but expensive at $900 Usd.

Keeping 2 of the older batteries on board to extend range.

Where do you store your batteries?

I keep 1 on the v berth.  I have the carry bags for them.  I have 3 batteries and 2 bags.  On long trips, I put the third battery where gas storage is as they is usually empty.

I always rotate them.  1 battery stays is v-berth, 1 stays home, and 1 goes with me to and from the boat on each sail for a recharge.  They are much easier to handle than a gas can, and you can switch on the fly if needed.  It can be stressful if you are in heavy swells or wakes to switch the batteries.

FYI- your old mainsail is looking good.

I have to learn how to load a photo.  I attached a photo of your old main.  I like the loose foot slugs.
Thanks again.

My 1003L got me to and from a 32 mile round trip in light winds.  Burned through 3 bateries but averaged about 5 knots on each 16 mile leg. 

The first attempt dead into 20 mile + winds and 2-3 foot seas ended in a return to dock.  I was draining the batteries too quick, and did not have any cove to shelter in for the battery change.  Smple operation in calm water, a bit more stressful when riding a bucking bronco...

No surprises, Torqeedo did not let me down, but need to plan ahead, and those batteries are expensive...newest battery with extended range was My go to for the challenging stretch, the turn and run for home, and the two bridge crossings.

I've been thinking about getting one of these for my dinghy. I'm glad to see it's working so well for you.
