It is imperative to accurately measure the transom mount height for an Epropulsion outboard. Having the wrong measurement for the shaft length can drastically affect the performance of the outboard. If the measurement taken is too short for the transom mount, the propeller will not sit deep enough in the water. When the propeller does not sit deep enough in the water it will cavitate and decrease efficiency. If the measurement taken is too long for the transom mount, the propeller will sit too deep into the water. When a propeller sits too low behind a boat, it will have increased water resistance and reduced speeds.

How to Find Your Shaft Length

If you are looking for an ePropulsion electric outboard for your boat, choosing the correct shaft length is important. 

Please note that ePropulsion has a different shaft length measurement from gas-powered outboards. For electric outboards, the shaft length is measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the center of the propeller. For gas outboards, it’s measured from the top of the clamp bracket to the anti-ventilation plate.

As you can see, our XS is close to S from Mercury. Our S is close to L from Mercury. Our L is longer than L from Mercury. See below.

To find the suitable shaft length, the principle is to make sure the top of the propeller is matched to the lowest point of the transom. Hard to put it into practice? Well, in order to get the right shaft length, first, measure the transom height, the length from the top of the boat transom to the bottom of the boat.

After that, you could choose the recommended shaft length based according to the transom height.

For most small dinghies and aluminum boats under 15ft or 4.5m, extra short shaft and short will work, depending on the transom height, some over 40 cm / 15.7 inches, some not.

For boats with the transom height higher than 50 cm / 19.7 inches, a long shaft version is more suitable. For daysailers, sports boats and other sailing boats it’s best to measure the distance from the water line to the top of your outboard mount.

Great Motor

The motor is quiet and works great the only thing is the battery lifts about 1/2 inch when tilting.

Little powerhouse

Used it on finger lakes ny recently on my Bauer 12 sailboat 330 lb plus 2 adults. Motored easily at 4 knots. Quite and smooth. Wife acceptance factor very high. Happy with the purchase. Staff very helpful and responsive.

Perfect for our purpose

A little bit about our needs. We have a 58 foot express cruiser and currently do most of our boating on Fort Loudon Lake and the TN river. Eventually we will be migrating south to the Gulf Coast and eventually the Carribean. We are using our dinghy, a Zodiac Cadet 310 (10 foot), to run relatively short distances. I did a lot of research comparing it to gas as well as other comparable electric motors.
I have several reasons for going electric. Our engines are diesel and I did not want the hassle and safety hazard of carrying gasoline. I wanted something low maintenance and quite without the hassles of a pull start. I recently installed a Bluetti Inverter/solar system on my boat and the electric motor only ability to charge from solar or self generate only made sense.
I like the fact that the EProplusion battery will float if dropped. Separated from the motor/shat the weight of the unit is manageable. Power utilization seems to be optimized at about half throttle and honestly the speed differential doesn't seem to be all that dramatic from WOT. You should not expect a fast ride, but a leisurely cruise with power to spare and no noise is pleasant experience.
I think the Mercury electric has a little slicker appearance, although I received a lot of compliments about the EPropulsion at a recent raft up.
The only negative that I have noted so far is that the battery only has a red to blue charging light. It would be nice to have a readout of the percent of charge on the battery itself without having to attach it to the engine.
As of now, I am pleased with our purchase!

EPropulsion Spirit 1.0 EVO on Precision 21 sailboat

I recently purchased an Epropulsion Spirit 1.0 EVO for my Precision 21 sailboat. I also added the wireless remote.
What a wonderful change from the 4 stroke outboard I’d been using. Whisper quiet, no fumes, no gasoline, much lighter, and all it does is work every time I need it to.
My P-21 is a stub keel and weighs ~2300 lbs. With zero wind and the motor at 60 watts the boat moves at 1.2 knots. According to the motor readout it can do this for 9+ hours! With zero wind and the throttle wide open the boat moves at 3.5 knots. Your speeds may vary.
We’re also able to cogenerate ( leaving the motor down while sailing) It does slow the boat down by ~ 0.5 knots and we don’t tack quite as quickly.
The wireless remote allows me to keep my eyes forward while docking and precisely control the motor speed and direction.
I also added a tag line to the motor release lever so I can lower the motor back in the water without having to reach through my stern railing.
We bring the battery home to recharge when we hit 40 volts. I’ve also purchased the solar charger but haven’t gotten that running yet.
Overall a great motor. Thanks!
