I am working on behalf of a major marine manufacturer that is considering the development of a line of electric outboard motors.
They are seeking 10 candidates for possible in-field testing of beta-versions of these motors. Candidates will be selected based on the feedback from a questionnaire. As there are only a handful of people with experience with electric outboards, your probabilities of selection are quite high.
The questionnaire is very simple. Mostly, they are asking lifestyle questions and hopefully looking to gain insight into the mindset of those who would choose an electric motor over a conventional gas-motor. The questions are general in nature and they are not asking for any proprietary knowledge, but the level of detail provided will most likely be a determining factor in their selection of candidates.
A number of members from the Electric Boating Association of America have participated in this study. If you would like to be included, send an e-mail to "PropulsionDynamics@Yahoo.com" and a questionaire will be sent to you.
Look forward to having you onboard...
