    Hydrogen fuel cell generator

    Socalrider. Agreed 200% H2 is not going to work. Right now, nothing beats the efficiency of diesel plus solar/wind and batteries on a boat.

    Hydrogen fuel cell generator

    Interestingly, the company I work for abandoned H2 Fuel Cells for H2 Internal Combustion Gen Sets for our off grid power modules. I was surprised and pleased today to get an email from a potential client interested in a 'catamaran' application. Would never have expected an unsolicited inquiry for a boating application. If you have clean water and a power source like solar, you can create H2 with an electrolyzer. Some can create the H2 under pressure so that a separate compressor device is not needed. Storage of energy at pressure is very effective from a weight perspective.

    New Hinckley 53

    Was speaking recently to a skipper who is considering this boat. He'd never heard of the Surfari so I went back to compare the specs. Can't believe that the H53 carries only 100 Gal of fuel. That's nuts. Then again 30K lbs for a 53 foot boat is very light.

    Do these boats cross the Atlantic on their own bottoms?

    End of a dream

    The jury returned a large award today for which we are grateful. Unfortunately, the defense will seek to appeal the verdict. Justice may be inevitable but it is not swift.

    Thank you for the kind offer. Marion can’t get on a boat. Balance, vision and fear/panic issues. Congratulations on the new Ensign.

    End of a dream

    After nearly seven years, the legal ordeal is nearly over. Has been hell. Yesterday was one of the toughest days. Cried like a baby during my son’s testimony.
