Re: Cpp

I drove a Swedish boat that had an early Hundstatt , years ago.

Great at efficiency but it was a fish boat , converted to a yacht , so there was no gearshift.

Not usually a problem , but on starting , you had to remember YOU WERE IN GEAR!,

so if the boat needed a faster idle to warm up, you should have cranked to neutral thrust at that speed , before shutdown.

Plan on a tranny with neutral for our hi efficiency New build with CPP , if we can pull the construction costs off.

Re: Cpp

Found an article on CPP that when a bit old gives a comparison of costs.
It seems the CPP compares good because it does not need a gearbox
