Looks good some where in the 50 foot or a little longer ?? Whats the drive ? We have a 48 footer pleasure boat here and i can see lots advantages in the pod drive IPS for picking up pots and manouvering etc etc dont know about commercial use but
I tried to talk this company into using a pair of IPS in the 90 footer we are building ! Its like a canoe long and narrow and used on lakes in confined water ways but they went for stern drives instead so will have to have big thrusters at each end !!
Nothing wrong with glassing the old fashioned way and just use a resin gun to apply the resin ! its quick ,easy and consistant. I did some infusion a while back but could see it wasnt all its cracked up to be and unless you have a well schooled team 100% dedicated to the cause and know completely everything about every job it could very easely turn to custard in a very short time ! so i stay doing what i know works and is easy to sleep at night !! .
