can also be mounted on the boat which he will have completed inearly 2009. This boat is heavily electric, and will be able to pluginto his home system to both provide continuous recharge, as wellas to be able to use the 400+/four hundred plus amp hours of batteryin the boat system as part of the home system. He also has anelectric motor capable of driving the small boat at 8/eight to 10/tenknots for over 24/twenty-four hours without a recharge. The boat isan american sharpie rigged with fully battened lug sails also knownas 'junk sails'. The boat is flat bottomed and can be beached withrelative ease anywhere in local waters. The boat is designed toprovide transportation and habitat for long periods in the event of global water issues, or local transportation break down. In the eventof local civil disturbance the boat can be easily launched very closeby, and would then provide the ability to stand away from problemson shore. Further, in the event of mass evacuations, the boat alsofacilitates the use of very low traffic waterways as an alternative tooining the local populace on clogged or failing roads. Clif hasstored fuel in several forms. and is prepared for emergencyconditions for at least 2/two years. Clif has an extensive collectionof hand tools, and is skilled in their use. Clif is a vegetarian of many decades, and is developing yet more skills in food productionand storage. He is now exploring the potentials for 'sproutedgrains/seeds' as a Fall/Winter based fresh food source. He has alsocrafted a steel framed geodesic grow dome of 30/thirty plus feetdiameter for season extension in food production. This greenhousedome is provided energy for fans and heat via a bleed off systemfrom the solar panels (and soon the windmill). The greenhouseprovides fruits, vegetables, herbs, and mushroom production spaceas well as a place to work on the masts and other looooong stuff inthe winter.George Ure is a 'land baroon' in SE Texas where he is crafting hisown 'boat on land' approach to weathering the coming storms. Hisactivities include solar electric, as well as goat-power (nope, notgiant mutant space goats) systems. He hopes to be able to completehis invention of the goat-powered shortwave radio while patents arestill quasi-meaningful. Recent activities include stress testing of materials, and advanced word smithing.
