Elecrtric Elko, a fine way to blow tens of thousands and suffer a boat with no practical use.

Perhaps in a few decades , when batt tech is 1000% better , but even then mostly for a boat with different energy uses than simple propulsion.

As a strong believer in the Power Squadron I did some checking. I don't think there is a Power Squadron near Wichita.

Thanks again guys for the input. As far as Elco, it's a great idea, but I figured that it would be pricey and wanting some technological advances.

I'm so glad I found this thread! Great Harbor Trawlers still in business?

As well as this forum! A great first step for me.

It's been very informative!
