Account of repowering Coincidence, a 1982 Victoria 26 Elegante (Victoria Yachts, DeBary FL). Coincidence home port is Lake Mendota near Madison WI. New system is a 5kW brushless motor and Sevcon controller paired with a Sillette outdrive. System is powered by a 48v 100Ah AGM battery bank which is regenerative while under sail.

Took family out this evening--and recorded more data using two GPS units. Apparently my knotmeter is due for calibrating. Full throttle is giving me about 5 knots.
