250hp Diesel outboard
We had an interesting charter over the weekend.
One of the guys onboard, is involved in the fitting and testing of 250hp diesel outboards on RN fast boats. As all the Force's now have a single fuel policy for all their equipment (diesel), the new engine has been developed.
The pictures I was shown indicate that it it no bigger than comparable petrols and the engine is reported to be very smooth and running well.
If successful, I would suggest it might go down well in the civil side too
