marissa eco 18 finished


Recommended Posts

18Finally finished my marriage eco 18 .. rides like a dream and kicked the ass off of the 4 foot white caps ( I'm used to running rough water 6 to 8 foot. Don't try it until your trained when running small boats.. one wrong move and your in trouble) but this girl cut right trough.. wow.. took a long time but thanks.

Just a follow up, the boat sure turned heads! Had to wipe off a lot of drool from guys at the dock. This was especially true when a guy watched me trailer the boat with one finger.   I tried puck board on the trailer guides instead of carpet and it works as good as Teflon.   I have to keep the boat cabled while backing in or I will be doing so without a boat on board. It's not cheap as you need to buy the thicker stuff to allow for burying the screw heads but worth every penny. So thanks graham for making me the envy of the lake.

      Hi everyone, 
      I am dreaming of one day building a boat. The Ocracoke 20 and Marissa are beautiful designs and are right now the favourites. 
      However, since I am in the dreaming stage and will remain here for at least some time I can't help but think about future rigging options that will be available to me once I actually get to building. 
      I live in Europe where the green movement is strong and there is strong support for electric propulsion. And if these trends persist I am not going to have much of an option, I will have to go electric. 
      A key feature of electric boats is fuel economy, which I think works really well with the ocracoke and marissa designs as they are very economic. But how much battery weight can for example a Marissa manage before having to make major modifications? Does putting 150kgs of batteries under the console ruin the design? How about 300kgs?
      I am assuming it will be powered by a 40-60 hp equivalent outboard. 
      Batteries are constantly getting lighter and more powerful (and thankfully cheaper as well) . To me it would be interesting to try to understand when my requirements for weight, range, and price will be met. 
      So what do you guys think? Are these design suitable for electric propulsion?

      I am thinking about building a Marissa and wanted to see if anyone around Kent Island Maryland/ Eastern shore is building one or another similar model.  If possible I would like to assist or at least come see the project. 443-454-5966.
