Title says it all really, I have my eye on an engineless Yamaha GP1200R for converting to electric, My only question is with todays motor technology what would be the fastest i would be able to get out of an all electric ski with or without the help of gears, I have owned a 2004 seadoo gtx 185 before and liked it alot just hated the work involved for winterising etc and HATED filling the f***er up with fuel, I think batteries are the way to go, I've built a nice 52v 750w bbs02 powered mid drive downhill ebike with help from the guys over at pedalecs forum, (they pointed me here for higher powered builds so here i am
Here's a pic of the bike..

Anyway the plan here is build something to outrun a standard ski if possible, Just thinking with that big engine and fuel tank gone it leaves a lot of room for batteries and a decent motor, Plus i think i could keep the weight even lover down in the hull so should be a lot more stable to ride,
This really is just a thought at this stage, Im just hoping some folks here can help me make it reality..
