The pace in my electric kayak is rather sedate, around 6 mph pulling about 220 watts. The (2) blocks of cells are 12.8 volts at 200 a-hr or 2560 w-hr storage. 70 mile range at 100% DOD, so never want to push it that far, but at 80% DOD, a 56 mile range which at 10 hours of travel is about all I could handle myself.

The goal with a couple of solar panels is to be able to cover 75 miles every 2 days AND run a small Engel freezer to keep my steaks frozen and make ice for the ice chest. Then I will be able to kayak camp for weeks and sail down the Sea of Cortez in Mexico.
