    To anyone who might know. How to convert gas outboard to electric outboard.

    Advancements in drive hardware?

    Thank you Grim, for you kind reply. Yes, I pretty much expected that the cables were still in use as the main drive today. I was just trying to find out what is being done differently today.

    Advancements in drive hardware?

    Thank you for your reply Daniel. I only got into boats in 1975 and the flex shaft was the predominant drive at that time ,although some of the boaters perhaps, were going back to the older way.
