The crew

die Crew Cachalote Projekt

Experts and enthusiastic people wanted

To build this boat, many different participants are required.

This page is still quite blank, and I want to fill in the gaps.

With “The Crew”, I am not only addressing the people who will actually live and work on board the Cachalote.

I need supporters in many different areas. Individuals or groups who help with their expertise in the following areas:

1. Desalination products which you would recommend, which work best, which require the least maintenance, which produce the most fresh water, which are the most environmentally friendly, which require the least energy to operate, etc. ?

2. Solar modules which would you recommend, which work best, which require the least maintenance, which generate the most energy in the smallest space, etc. ?

3. Wind generators the same questions: which ones would you recommend, which ones work best, which ones require the least maintenance, which generate the most power, etc. ?

4. Water-powered engines if you have good experience or proof that Stanley Meyer’s experimental water-powered car actually works and can be applied to our marine engines, please contact me. Or any other viable technology that replaces the need for diesel fuel.

5. Financial advice and/or support everyone is welcome to share their ideas on how to raise the money for Cachalote.

6. Anything else you see in the design of the ship that could be improved to make the ship more advanced, environmentally friendly and self-supporting.

On all the above topics, I welcome new inventions and ideas in these areas. That’s what Cachalote stands for.

Belief in a particular idea gives the researcher the support for his work. Without this faith, he would be lost in a sea of doubts and half-valid proofs
