I'm seriously considering a hydraulic get home at some point. I have two gensets on board a 20kW and an 8kW. I was thinking I could put the hydraulic pump on the 20kW genset.

What size genset do you have and how powerful is your hydraulic motor? What size is your boat and what speed can you make with it?

Thanks
