Silent Adventure is a small electric river
launch with seating for up to four adults.

The boat was built 2003 in Norfolk by Paul Morton

A Briggs & Stratton Etek motor (Lynch design) running at 24 volts via a 4QD speed controller provides a top speed of approx. 10kph.

Power is provided by four lead-acid gel batteries arranged as two independent banks with separate isolator switches.  An LED digital meter displays motor current consumption battery voltage & Amp/hour capacity etc.   Charging from mains power is by a portable automatic switch-mode electronic battery charger.
