Interesting! I've got a mate who was doing some work on a new diesel engine for an airship company, they were originally airship industries, but this could be them.

He said they were having trouble keeping the motor together tho'

They were called airship industries. I had some involvement with the grp bit which hangs under, but that was a few years ago when i did grp stuff. I talked to one of the guys I know there at the work boat show and he said the Mod were looking at the outboard version as the current O/B iesel are heavy.

They might not be too bad when you take off the big rubber bit above.
