        I did a degree dissertation on ways to save fuel.. Once you start looking into it there is huge scope for research.

          yeah fuel savings sounds good - it could branch into more efficient water production on cruise ships, fixed rpm cpp or variable speed fixed pitch propulsion, hull shape, bulbous bows...

              The benefits of condition based maintenance, you could take a real ship and develope a CBM plan for it and show whether or not it would be more cost effective.
