Open Source Magnetohydrodynamic Watercraft Engine

From Open Source Ecology
Jump to: navigation, search


- A watercraft engine that uses a tube

- Think "Catapillar Drive" From "The Hunt For the Red October" (Granted this isn't stealthy due to the huge magnetic signature, a P-3 would have no problem finding the Red October)

- Is quieter + somewhat safer than exposed motors

- Has no exposed parts, only a smooth plastic/metal/ceramic tube, and is thus almost corrosion maintainence + marine life removal free
