They need to start working on new propeller designs, I think the ones they use are still from the older systems and are slowly falling behind the pack. With those old props you have someone that has enough power behind them. They have a new 2 man (like the original subs) system there working on also, nice to see the program winning, now they have to start tapping area business for sponsorships.
