I like turbos.I liked them in cars and I like them on motorcycles.
I don't think they are applicable in a tight engine compartments of most sailboats. I don't believe there is enough airflow in these compartments.
A good turbo system will glow a dull red when operating under a load and the propeller is a constant load.
My two cents
