Amazing Solar-Powered Catamaran

An amazing solar-powered catamaran, I would say, it is impossible to capsize it:

Re: Amazing Solar-Powered Catamaran

That report was 2 years ago...an inspiration for building my solar boat,
the solar part, not the $24 million part..
More along the lines of my boat is this one (however, me thinks this one is not so pretty..)

Re: Amazing Solar-Powered Catamaran

We watched the smaller one come and go in our neighborhood prior to there start. Bare bones boat, a fun chalenge, but no ac, watermaker, or blender.
