Not from me Welder.
To be honest, I have been dealing with a lot of in-house stuff for the last few months so haven't spoken to Barry in a while.
Last I did they were working with the gearboxes and trialling new things. My understanding is they have had a great deal of interest, some local, some offshore and are looking to commercialise the tech sooner than expected (remember, this was released as a work in progress).

Rest assured, when I know something, you will hear it.

Actually, there is one thing I heard about, they are looking at getting some press onboard for a test. It is scheduled for March I believe. I'm not sure if the detail you guys will want will come from it but time can only tell.

Cheers,
Tim.

Propulsion system looks promising, is there plans to take this commercial as viable alternative to I/O. Could be a market for someone looking into a better system then sticking a leg out of the transom, or a more reliable system than that.
If I did find a decent alternative for my rebuild I would consider it, and I am running a Volvo I/O diesel 290SP, also I am only one of many. where can more info be found?

That's the idea absolutely. The best place to start is on the Contrapel website http://contrapel.com/. It is fairly 'old school' and is written more as a white paper but it is a good place to start. When I hear anything, I post it here so here is probably the next best place.
