    Thats really cool, so how much fuel can you carry and what is your estimated consumption?? 400 miles is a haul at 65mph you have to be burning at least 1 mpg??

    Oh watch out for those drug submarines!

    When I heard, quite some time ago, that you were building a diesel NorTech 50V, I began to wonder if something special might be in the wind.

    I guess this qualifies!

    Have a safe trip.

    I'm glad you finally let the cat out of the bag. Every since you told Wrinkleface and I at the Miami show I have been expecting him to explode trying to hold it in.
    Just let me know if you need a throttleman

    Its about time to get Feet Wet Again!!!

    Hi Bob,

    Hans and I are really happy to join you on this record attempting trip and all for a good cause (Molter Trust).

    Its also a great excuse to get out of the house and office again and have some fun. I will take some nice shots of Havanna Cuba for you if you agree to pick up a yellow and red life raft that might be in your path with a bunch of knuckleheads in it with cameras (hopefully not). I would offer the same but I have a problem landing in the water and I only have 4 seats (one empty).

    All good though. Can't wait and I hope the weather holds. It is looking good.

    That looks interesting. I will check that out and probably order one. Thanks.
    We will be carrying a Sat phone and I have in mind to call our friend OSO/FMO MegaByte*3 ( Tom Cullen ) and have him post periodic updates.
