>Some solid test data confirming claims of higher efficiency, using several styles of boats, would go a long way to building trust.<

The problem for boat assemblers is a CPP requires understanding , and knowledge to be efficient.

They are trying to sell self docking boats to novices .

Knowledge is power , but todays boat purchaser prefers automatic to skills.

The CPP has been in use for at least 75 years on fish boats to ships , useful for thousand of hours a year folks ,

20% savings on a 200 hour a year boat for $10K?

Doubtful, as the install requires a thrust bearing , so it would be a difficult option.

Thanks FF, but my comment was towards the Autoprop which (as I understand it) doesn't require monitoring exhaust temperatures and manual adjustments to the propeller angles, or any modifications to a boats existing engine, transmission, or shaft.
