    I have just heard, and it isn't in the press yet, that Selva - who actually make the legs for Torqueedo on a contract manufacturing deal, have just done a deal with a Korean company and they will be doing their own, complete, electric outboard - the deal has only just been signed, so production schedule and when the first outboards will become available I have no idea. I expect there will be an announcement at Southampton Boat Show. One thing is for certain, having spoken to Carlo Selva about it, is their props will be easily replacable! If you can hang fire a bit and make do this season, buy a used Minn Kota or Yamaha electric outboard and run it on a gel battery while the Li outboards are perfected.

    The new model Selva 2.5hp outboard weighs just 13.5kgs, with propeller - I can literally pick it up on my little finger, we tried it and I got a picture of my friend holding it on his little finger too! Not every water allows petrol outboards though.

    That is the old 2.5hp - the new 2.5hp is called the Guppy, not yet available and will take over from the Seahorse. My pictures (first press pictures worldwide!) are still in my camera - Selva shipped a pre-production engine over for me to test last week. It is the most powerful, lightest, and biggest capacity, 2.5hp on the market. Now, the cynics will be saying a 2.5hp produces 2.5hp...not so! It is a 'nominal figure' but of those available, even if they all have 2.5 horses, the Selva seems to have cart horses, rather than polo ponies!

    Another hot gossip is the impending launch (not yet launched) of the Garmin electric outboard motor....it will be given the name FORCE. So several new options coming through to take a chunk of the Torqueedo sector. If you want electric performance though, there is no substitute yet for the Torqueedo DEEP BLUE, equivalent to 80hp and goes like stink!
