    I am the owner of Hydro~Tech LLC. I have installed this technology on many
    fishing boats including, F/V Dragon Lady, F/V Direction, F/V William Bowe,
    F/V Providian, F/V Gale Warnings II, F/V Revolution, F/V Mckinley, and many others. Please contact me with any questions or interest.

    Here's a question. What is Hydro Tech?

    A little more info instead of spam might go over better, sounds interesting but maybe a link or more info would be appropriate.

    Agreed, why don't you explain what it is and how it works, instead of what boats have it. For those of us that don't know those boats, the fact that they have it installed doesn't mean much to us.

    And for those of us who know about some of the boats you talked about, they are all larger boats than people on this forum have. What is the smallest boat your system will fit in?

    The F/V Revolution is 45' and the F/V Gail Warnings II is 40' both with 625hp Luggers.
    We have systems for motors at 90hp. Many of the boats named have put these smaller
    units on their gensets. I just recently sold a unit to the power plant on Matinicus Island,
    Maine for their generators. They will work for gas or diesel. There is more info on my web
    site at Performance Fuel Systems, Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technology RI & MA | Hydro-Tech, Rhode Island and Massachusetts it has a link to the parent company. Thanks......Jack

    Travis, are you running one of his systems, or just looking to "test" one out? :)

    I can get some real time numbers on a vessel more akin to what we're running on here

    Do you see an increase in EGT's ?

    I know it lowers the soot level, not sure about the temp.

    It most likely lower soot levels due to a hotter burn, the extra oxygen entered in the combustion chamber is not matched by fuel.

    So what's the advantage for engines that don't soot much? The 6140 Luggers are notorious for smoke/soot. I'd be more impressed by someone who writes a couple of paragraphs about what they have to offer off the cuff, as it were, than just posting some links. There are a wide range of boats on here, some are high performance, some are not. Some of us are running on top of the water, some of us are pushing along down in it. Even still some two strokes kicking around here. Dirty engines I'm told, but my 671 TI's don't make the soot like a mechanical Lugger, Cat, or MAN. Show us what you know. Real numbers. Work for it. Could be an interesting thread...

    exactly, that website doesn't really explain what the equipment does so why post a link that doesn't tell us anything. i would be interested in the unit if i knew how it worked and what actual benefits i'll get. how is it installed? what new lines do i need to run, and what does it to to EGT's and firing pressures. how will it effect injectors that are already hurting from the low lubricity of low sulfur diesel oil. this guy should tell us what hes offering. Instead he is just saying here is some snake oil, wanna buy it?

    As the Hydro~Tech you probably should know :confused:.

    Your Website leaves a lot to question. Reminds me of Tornado Air or Fuel saving Magnets.

    Because its more of a snake oil, if it truely saved the amount of fuel and generated the power it says. It would have been on the track decades ago. This is not some new fangled technology that came out yesterday.

    It may seem like snake oil, but I have been installing these units for over a year. 30 on fishing/lobster boats alone. Not one return and every boat is saving money. A gallon to a gallon and a half per hour savings. Not sure what more the web site can explain. Very basic, go to Facebook page for pictures. Maybe the visual aides will help you understand
    what you can't grasp in text.

    I can make WAY more power with a fogger nozzle, high pressure pump, 9 gallon resivoir and a shit load of winshield washer fluid. Not only make more power, lower egt's get more MPG and 100+ more hp.
