Few snippets from their website:
> Its design, enabled by modern computer modeling and additive manufacturing, has solved the most basic problem of rotary propulsion. Specifically, tip cavitation and vortices have been eliminated or significantly reduced….
> …the Sharrow Propeller is 9-15% more efficient than the industry standard…design. …also exhibits a wider peak efficiency curve for greater utility over a wide scope of operational ranges.
> Additionally…generates more thrust and uses less energy for a given RPM than a standard propeller design, which increases acceleration dramatically.
Supposed to be great but crazy amount of $$$. I would legit cry if I ever dinged up my stock stainless prop, let alone a $5K [!] one.
7. OH: DNR offers $500K grants to improve boating access in ’21.

> ODNR Division of Parks and Watercraft is offering $500K in grants to improve boating access for hand-powered watercraft at public facilities across the state. Applicants may request up to $75K for a single project during the grant period.
Not a big paddler guy lol, but seems like I could make a pretty insane spot to walk into the water and step on a paddle board with $75K?

11. TN: Asian carp advisory commission held its first meeting.
> The TWRA was recently awarded nearly $1.7 mil from the US Fish and Wildlife Service to conduct carp control and monitoring in the coming year.
