Please don't regard him as an "expert"; he's getting quite old and thinks that "fadiddling fumble-putz" is a more accurate description.

  1. It sounds like Lithium-ion batteries may finally be ready for “consumer” use. I’ve been enamored of their capabilities for a long time, but the consequences of a management failure has been a concern. If they can put ’em in the ultimate “consumer” boat, maybe there’s hope!

    “….so the boaters can freely use all sorts of powered accessories during “a longer, quieter and more Eco-friendly day on the water.”
    I presume by “quieter”, they’re implying you can run your blender without firing up the genset? This would be exciting if it hadn’t already been solved by the guys at Heart Interface and Trace Engineering back in the 1980’s… seems a little ironic that they are also equipping it with a who-knows-how-many megawatt stereo system.
    Personally I’d trade the quiet purr of a dozen gen-sets to one idiot in the anchorage with his favorite Kendrick Lamar blasting away at 100+ dB… usually one of those “many new boaters” SeaRay is trying to appeal to….
