Hi, I'm wondering everyones thoughts on IPS installations on 50foot plus fly bridge boats. The way I see it is over 50 feet you need tripple IPS 600's and there fore you don't have a keel so what is the stability of the vessel like at anchor and in a following sea? Some people I have spoken to say just fit a gyro... In my opinion IPS boats get their fuel efficiency from being built very lite so by installing a gyro you will be adding another tone of weight and therefor losing fuel efficiency. I also see an issue with the lack of torque of the small 6 liter engines, what happens when the owner throws all his owner gear on the vessel and it has a couple of months worth of growth growing on the hull... How will the fuel efficiency be effected here? What I am trying to say for the are the good old shaft driven vessels going to be a thing of the past or do you think the consumers are going to demand pod drive vessels??? If anyone has any thoughts I would like to hear the pros and cons Thankyou Traveller.
