Do you wish to see lithium batteries added to class rules?

Post by Dan Corcoran »

Please respond to this thread if you wish to see lithium batteries supported? Please jump in and say so, along with
1. If this was available now, would you (i) buy it now, and if not, in what calendar year in the future would it be relevant to you.
2. why?

Your answers decide if volunteers such as me, do the work to add them to the class rules in 2025 or instead some future year.

If you want to volunteer your boat for a lithium trial, see my other post in class rules.

Thanks

Please reply if you wish the class to invest technical efforts into expanding battery rules beyond lead acid into Lithium. I thought I heard at least 4 people desire this for cruising their sailboats. Others might simply not want their next 10yr battery investment to be lead acid again.

Please also write here, if lead acid is good enough. Your comments are welcome also.
