Unless something dramatically changes, we are going to need alternate power supplies on LR boats. What's next? Are we going to see diesel/electric propulsion? Turbines? FUEL CELLS? I know there are some people that work with the big stuff now. What's on the horizon that is feasible? Personally, I believe that the diesel/electric option will be available on 30' boats soon. These are already operable on some catamaran sailboats as aux power (Lagoon Sailboats) and do very well. Let's hear what ya gotta say.:?
