Forum SFTS

SFTS is a very interesting concept. It could be especially interesting for Canada or Finland (countries that have lots of islands and lots of ice). Small ships equipped with conventional instantly changeable batteries that may be charged by "green" (wind or wave) generators serving all-the-year-round routes - it could be the reality in the very near future. The costs of ships and their service (minus R&D costs) can be cheaper regarding existing ships. The problem is that it is time of accountants now, not researchers.
 

The Royal Institution of Naval Architects kept SFTS concept on their site in Technical Forum section (Large Ships) but they modified their site and deleted this concept with the Forum section.
 

Mankind started to open up the space. People had courage 50 years ago. It becomes the thing of the past (glorious past). :-(
