The goal, from the beginning, has been to develop the most efficient design possible and have the stability and comfort that other electric boats don’t have. it would be a terrible waste of time just to have another electric boat out there with no significant imporvement. In the past 5 years it has been recognized that bow wave and wake are damaging to the shoreline in estuaries and lakes across the country.
