Value Proposition: compare to gas-guzzling smelly polluting never ending cost & maintenance of conventional outboards
The cost of fuel, maintenance, the smell & pollution that come with an outboard gas motor never ends, but the SolarSkiff NEVER needs gas (& avoids all the other hassles of fueled engines, too!).
Let's compare costs of the SolarSkiff with a 2 person gas outboard boat of the same length & beam, such as:
Uncle Buck's Pond Prowler from Bass Pro Shops
$679.99 for the boat +
$1000 for the motor +
$1000 for a lifetime of gas +
$1000 for the required trailer +
fuel tank, fuel lines, pumps & connectors +
trolling motor, charger & heavy lead-acid battery =
about $4500 for a lifetime of smelling gas fumes, flushing the motor after each use & other on-going recommended maintenance
Compare to the SolarSkiff 842:
- $3800 plug-in or $4550 solar
- No fumes!
- No trailer required!
- No flushing with each use!
- NEVER NEEDS GAS!
