Maelstrom Systems hires marketer for jet drive

Maelstrom Systems of Tallahassee, Fla., hired World Wide Marine Consultants to market its RipJet electric-powered jet drive to the marine industry and has exclusive marketing rights to the marine marketplace worldwide.

The RipJetis an electric water-propulsion motor that looks like a miniature aircraft jet turbine engine. The inventor, Hugh Nicholson, working in conjunction with Boston University, discovered new physical properties of water that separate a water and vapor stream within the drive and push out significantly greater thrust than it takes in.

Independent tests from the University of Michigan's Hydrodynamics Lab report that a 15-pound electric RipJet can create thrust comparable to a 175-pound conventional gas motor.

"The application for this product within the marine industry holds tremendous potential and will revolutionize the way propulsion systems are used," said World Wide Marine Consultants CEO Ken Hall. "I'll be introducing the RipJet to select prospects during the Miami show and welcome all inquiries from our media partners."
