    I had a day with Evan last week putting the new Scout version through its paces. It is a mid size solution. Max speed 1.8m/2 forward, 0.8m/s lateral thrust,  with angled thrusters

    We ran it on a stream with a maximum surface velocity of 0.08 m/s and there was a gusty upwind occurring.

    Its amazing when you put a boat with an outboard jet motor (40HP) on a pond to set up a line and suddenly Safety thinks you are going to kill yourself, then when you tell them you have just the right solution – it all becomes too expensive in their mind!!!!!
