Nigel Calder on hybrid power
There has been quite a bit of talk in past few years about hybrid propulsion — using both diesel engines/generators and electrical motors — as a way to move a boat through the water. Famed marine engineer and author Nigel Calder has been experimenting with hybrid power systems and he will discuss the results of this research on these systems during twoAmerican Boat and Yacht Council-sponsored webinars. Interested voyagers can log in from their home or office computer and participate in this web-based program. Part one is Wednesday, April 25 at 12 pm Eastern time. Part two will be Wednesday May 2 at 12 pm. You can register online here.
