I’m looking at purchasing an older 18’ Duffy and the electric motor and drive gear is not salvageable. Looking for an updated system and have heard good things about this company https://www.epropulsion.com/pod-drive/ any thoughts on this?
Wow, quite a nice system, but I'm sure very pricey and will involve some significant modifications to install that power rudder system. You didn't mention the vintage of the Duffy you are thinking of buying, but have you considered restoring it with a new, more efficient motor and running gear not requiring such modifications?
In any event, good luck, and please let us know what you end up doing.
Unfortunately I missed out on that one. I ended up buying a 2013 18’ Packet II and a 2003 21’ classic. The 21’ needs all new batteries and a serious cleanup!
@tmkassab Good luck with getting the boat in shape. I'm sure we'd like to see pictures or a link to pictures, if you are so inclined.
