Yep, you are correct: mine is also a 915. I had been looking at it and wondering how deep your battery had been in water, because it would take a lot to reach the place where the case junctures are, now I understand. That certainly explains it. Cheers

Just got a Torqeedo for my TI and am deciding if I should somehow shim to accommodate the radius of the aft deck when installing the ball mount. It looks like I could align two holes along the centerline of the boat leaving a slight gap at the outboard attachment bolts. Any experience dealing with this? Or does leaving a gap matter?

Thanks.

Shimming is a good idea, I did that on mine with some rubber gasket material. It's not a requirement, but it does make for a better install.

My battery also failed. I returned it to Torqueedo and they said it was full of water. It sits inside the hull and is exposed to the small amount of water that normally collects in there. I never thought it was enough to be an issue. They did replace it under warranty.

Yes, you never want to place the battery where water can pool. The battery is resistant to water from splashing, rain, etc., but if it sits in a pool of water for a length of time, water can eventually enter via the vent hole.
