NEW Throttle/Reverse

New controller for our electric drive system allows for simple operation by a single lever which controls speed from zero to full (left) and forward/reverse by corresponding movement of the control lever (right). This enables full control from full ahead to full reverse by  moving the single lever.

A Compromise 25 begins construction with the mold shown above.  This version of this beautiful launch is to be electrically driven and will use the new throttle/reverse control.  She will have ten horsepower 48 volt motor with standard sealed lead-acid batteries stored beneath perimeter seating.  Her trim will be mahogany with an oak planked sole .Hull color is standard white with varnished deck and trim.
At left is a photo of a completed Compromise 25 taken on a very still day.

Above is a view of the stern of the new launch while to the right is a shot of the interior with the stringer beds waiting to be glassed in place.
