Arc One Electric Boat

@iab had brought this up in the recently released thread. I was just going through some photos and video from earlier this year and came across some shots of the first time I got to drive one of these. It was the second build, so we were still working out a lot of details, but an amazing experience. I can’t describe how amazing it was to pilot a boat that I had designed, to actuate a throttle that I built in CAD myself, and to hear the rush of the water as the boat cruised across the lake.

Have to appreciate days like that.

Must have been very gratifying, congrats! Looks like it has some get-up-and-go too :speedboat:

The instant electric motor torque is fun!

Looks like a quality product. And the design is sure to make some hype waves as well.

Thanks @ralphzoontjens ! :ocean::ocean::ocean:

It was a really fun project. We kicked it off by actually writing the press release. The founders both have engineering backgrounds and are amazing on that side of things. I wanted to pull a bit of emotion out of them to ground the project and when the first articles came out about it they had almost the same headline we wrote! It was fun to go from high level design strategy down to building the CAD for the throttle myself :slight_smile:
