Outboard manufacturers better start thinking greener and coming up with 600HP electric motors. That seems to be the way the auto industry is leaning.

Plus the price of gas is up. Wouldn't matter to anyone who could afford those boats. But me, it matters.

Would love to see the size/weight of the batteries necessary to power a 600HP motor at full throttle for more than 5 minutes. Would probably be needing a tow-behind battery scow...
