Talk:Marine propulsion

This article lacks any mention of water jet propulsion. Water jets are used on some small craft and have been proposed for merchant ships (I don't know whether any were constructed). Hopefully someone with some knowledge of this area can improve the article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.67.149.60 (talk) 11:54, 7 February 2012 (UTC)

Starting these engines?[edit]

Information on the starting systems for these big monsters are lacking. Please add.Life is short, but the years are long! (talk) 19:42, 8 April 2012 (UTC)

This article seems to be about marine engines and the different energy sources used. But marine propulsion should include the z-drive, the Voith Schneider Propeller, the pump-jet, hydrojet, or water jet etc. That is, the mechanisms employed to provide thrust to a marine vessel. One more thing: When it comes to wind propulsion, that can be high-tech, why illustrate that form of propulsion with a more or less dilapidated fishing boot? How about http://www.skysails.info/english/ for a more relevant illustration of how wind is used to propel a ship? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 92.24.100.67 (talk) 11:04, 23 September 2013 (UTC)
