I still believe, as I said when I started thisthread, that this is the future. It has draw backs, and always will, but I think as sailors we should embrace the idea. I am not suggesting that we all go out and pay 500k for a new Lagoon, but I think support from the worlds most conservative bunch of people would do a lot to help this technology move forward. It is good on the environment, efficient, somewhat renewable, and can open up a lot of avenues for future generations that we do not have now.

As for me, I hope there is a day in the near future where a direct drive diesel for propulsion is the centerpiece in a museum... though I do not doubt that it may be many years in the future.
