The Engine / Re: Electric outboards.

Hi,  I'm a bit late to the party but interested in getting an electric outboard for WB62.

Gerald, I'm a bit confused as to which Epropulsion you have.  Is it the 'Spirit 1.0 EVO' which has the recharging ability but appears to be 1kW only.  Is this really powerful enough for close offshore and tides, etc.?  Or have you used on inland waters only?  PS I liked the Youtube on Conniston.

Any others who have some thoughts, please don't hesitate to advise/comment!

Greetings WB 120,
It would be lovely to meet up sometime but not in 2021 I fear!  Covid plus “cold as arse” weather!
From WB62!

I’m probably a moron but wouldn’t a silicon spray/grease do the job?  Those who know, please advise!

Ah yes, the order was completed not the build!
Do you still have your WB on the Broads?
It would be good to meet up sometime.

Many thanks, Dave, excellent info.  Mr Reid must have been a fast worker!

Also many thanks, Jos, for the video which is of Martin Cartwright's daring doings.

Hi, I am trying to establish when "Winkle" No.62 was built.  Does anyone have clues or, indeed, know the answer?

Many thanks, Dave.  Have found one near Fakenham.  What material have you used?  Canvas or PVC?

Hello Dave,
Could you let me know the name of the cover manufacturer you used.  I am in Norfolk (too?).

Hi Paul,  Sorry for un-speedy response.  Let me know if you do want to meet in August (or whenever).

Hello Yvonne and Paul,
It would be great to meet up on the Broads.  Not sure when anyone is thinking of. Maybe suggest 2 or 3 dates and we can see if diaries fit.

Hi John,  I bought “Winkle” from the famed Martin Cartwright in the summer and am similarly getting to grips with being a WB owner.  I first saw a WB at its debut at London Boat Show and should have bought then as she has been in my mind ever since!
Enough flimflam; reason for my post is to ask you for details of the removable trailer side lights.  Although MC has trailed “Winkle” around UK and Europe, I am worried about lack of side
Ights and am wanting to add some.  Been wondering whether there are battery operated led units but not found any so far.
Fair winds,
Pat Arnold.

Hi All,
Rather a late post to this subject but I bought "Winkle" from Martin Cartwright in August 2018 and it would be great to meet up on the Norfolk Broads sometime in 2019 with anyone who wishes to.
