A stainless steel bowsprit with a rocna storm anchor and 300 feet of chain, a windlass and a separate AGM in the bow to operate the windlass, radar on the mast, an arch with full solar array, a wind generator, a Imarsat satellite communications dome, catbird seats, a full cockpit enclosure, and a diesel powered margarita maker, (he suggested with tongue firmly in cheek).

You guys are evil creative geniuses.

The lesson from the Icarus story is not about human failing.
It is a lesson about the limitations of wax as an adhesive.
If you have an engineering problem solve it.

Wing mainsail and hydro foils

It would be the built in diesel margarita maker with fresh water cooling and the integral R.O. water maker that is only there to produce the sea salt that is used on the rim of the glass.

Re: Can this boat be saved

the salt for the rim on the glass, of course. so I presume the RO would also contain a Spray drying chamber that produces dry salt crystals of the exact proper size to make Margaritas. or would that be a separate diesel powered unit
