Q: I know that small electric outboard engines intended for fresh water use have been available for many years, but do any manufacturers produce larger engines more suited for sea angling?
Matthew Anderson, Huddersfield, West Yorks
DL says: Last year i got the chance to try out an electric outboard engine manufactured in Germany by torqeedo. the range includes a series of the usual low-power units, including 1.5hp, 3hp, 5hp and 8hp, but in addition to these, torqeedo also makes larger 40hp and 80hp engines.
