PlanetSolar boat design

The group PlanetSolar has announced a sea voyage using a vessel entirely powered by solar photovoltaic energy. Their project is a self-described (R)evolution that explores possible technologies intended to evolve into use with hybrid vehicles.

They compare their boat to a swan, as it makes no noise, no pollution and moves gracefully, thanks to its innovative, contemporary design. PlanetSolar has appointed a skipper, who is responsible for sailing the swan around the world. Visit the PlanetSolar website, entirely powered by solar energy, for the route and more information on the boat, those involved, and their project.

    If someone is what we call a dickhead and pisses you off you ignore them. Maybe it came from all of the dodgey guns that they sent here somewhere in our history but we don’t trust guns or people who let idiots spoil the party. On the topic of idiots – Kevin pops up all over the place on global warming forums. Who knows who he is or what his agenda might be. Please ignore him, he will dominant a post and take it no where, don’t let him. Now for a serious question, does anyone know anything about what makes OH in the atmosphere and how I might find out about that? Apparently it cleans up GHG’s?
