Re: Green Sail

Pardon my skepticism but this isn't new. Sailboats have been using electric propulsion, solar, composting toilets, etc. for some time now. And crossing oceans.

It appears to me that you are soliciting funds in order to equip your boat for free, or, with as little of your own money as possible. I don't see on your website that you are a non-profit so any contributions will not be deductible.

If I'm wrong, please feel free to reply.

Re: Green Sail

I think for boat to be really "green", boat must be made of natural materials like wood. Something like warram cat.

I agree, there's nothing new here and frankly I find your post a little naive and self serving with a feeling that lacks any real personal research on your part. I liken your attempts of soliciting funds no better than the emails I receive from a server in Ghana saying a long lost relative has died in a plane crash travelling to his diamond mine which I've now inherited.
