Now we're talking... fuel cells start making sense!

As an electric propulsion guy I've been following various fuel cell systems but so far they have been expensive with a high kludge factor and either too big or too small to make sense on a boat...

Oorja Protonics, has a methanol model set to hit the streets in a few months that looks very interesting being no bigger than a comparable marine gen set (5KW) and with a rumoured price of less than $15,000.

Do I hear an AMEN?
