I would have expected nothing less :). The only other test I'm curious about is how well the motor/battery cooling system does towing over a mountain grade.

The laws of physics are not kind to the X towing a boat. The Wh/mi is the challenge in towing. I'll try to post the full video later today.

I expected it to be bad but, perhaps, not that bad. I look forward to the full video whenever you get it done. No huge hurry.

Perhaps there's a new market to be served in Superchargers located near popular boat launches.

They'd have to be pull-through style Superchargers though.

I think Tesla is doing that destination charging program where they are trying to distribute as many HPWCs as possible. It might not be a bad idea for boat launches. Campgrounds with RV hookups would be perfect, whether you are trailer camping or tent camping.
