SailFastTri, it's true, early adopters of new technology often get bit by the first wave of unforeseen issues. On the other hand, early adopters can learn a lot from this and sometimes make giant leaps ahead of others. Or, they can crash and burn. I guess it has to do with temperament and risk-taking behaviors. The first Wright brothers aircraft changed remarkably quickly in the first few years. The Lehr technology has been used for some time on small industrial devices. Having engine
number 3 was a gamble, but I felt confident, enough, in the idea and the company, that I felt I could give it a chance in the year prior to taking off on my biggest cruise
. So far, my issues have been minuscule and part of the learning
curve. I am becoming more confident in the engine
, and in the company, with each day. So, it's probably a good idea for you to have others explore the unknown and lay down the trailmarks. We are each comfortable in our different roles. Eventually gasoline will go the way of wood and coal- fueled steam engines. Useful, in their time, but then surpassed by new stuff.
