Every new concept has seen a multitude of failed attempts along the way to success or dropping that idea and moving on to different concepts. As long as you can accept that, stroll on... Just don't forget that at some point in your voyage, you are going to need a backup plan for your family to live out their days...

The discovery of oil peaked in 1964. In each decade since then less oil found. According to Rystad Energy the average annual discovery of oil has declined to 9 billion barrels. Mankind consumes 36 billion barrels PA. 9 billion barrels is 27 billion short of what is required to maintain our current lifestyle. 9 billion is sufficient to meet our needs for 3 months. UNSUSTAINABLE! Your plan is sound!!!

So listening to your dream is very parallel to what I began in the early 70s on eco friendly things. Passive heating and cooling. Aquaponic gardening. Wind and solar power on land and sea..with those thoughts the Calypso a very inspiring take on wind wings which led me to the demographics of hydrofoils. So in designing your craft a graphite hull with hollow circular wind masts and flexible solar cellular sails..a lot to think about in one breath. After all I have almost 50 years in this pipe dream..lol my brother on the west coast and I on the east coast both enjoy your presentations. About a year away from retire for me and he retired 5 years ago. We are both pretty athletic, tennis and biking for me, and he is hiking and basketball. Both of our wives the same. We both have grandbabies the age of Lenny so that too gives us a special joy. Boaters all our lives with power and sail...keep up the good work. BEST wishes from Mark and Karol Ann and Ron and Lorie. The Sprinkles.

It's a brilliant idea, I alway wonder how sticking with the original setup compares to creating new stuff (and disposing of) over the entire life cycle. Most of the emissions of products aren't just while using it?

Riley, there’s a whole career in acting waiting for you if you ever tire of your seafaring life. I’ve been a Greenie and a sailor for over 50 years and have long thought about alternative auxiliary power for small vessels. 1. Catamaran gives the most solar generating area. 2. Length gives better speed/power ratio. Speed/power is the same as distance/energy which is basically fuel consumption. 3. Weight worsens all of the above. Weight increases with battery capacity. 4. The obvious way to go is the route Oceanvolt will take you. Knock a knot off (or put more sail on), when you’re doing ten knots, and trim your props and, presto! your twin motors will be generating in the multiple kilowatts range. Have you considered having a kite launcher and using a kite in light airs? So long as there’s enough to launch it, it will generally fly fine at altitude and they generate huge amounts of thrust. Check it out. I’ve followed you guys for three years now, and I’ve finally decided what makes you special (apart from Riley’s rugged looks, robust philosophy and thoughtful practicality; Eleyna’s flawless beauty, enchanting musicianship and home craft skills and, of course, Lenny’s bright-eyed joi de vivre and innocent delight). No, what makes you special (not counting your beautiful La Vagabond, the wonderful places you take us, the interesting and charming friends you have and the thrills and spills that keep us on the edge of our seats) - is, I can never work out which of you is the dominant one. I think that says a lot about the strength of your partnership. Kia Kaha, Arohanui.

Howdy! It’s mind boggling how much information is out there on this topic, but it’s still not mainstream. One of our partners has a monohull that he is trying to make into a “parallel hybrid.” It’s everything an electric has but you don’t have to ditch the diesel completely, it can charge your batteries while running, and it’s backup propulsion, or motoring in a bad storm. On our tour boat we dream of doing a similar system onboard with the added possibility of hydrogen fuel cells. The technology still isn’t mainstream enough these days to get it for a decent price point, but we believe it can happen as long as we don’t give up on the dream. Good on you for doing this, we are watching and learning so much from you! Cheers!

Maybe we need to think of something like and electrical enginered dynamo engine that gets charged when a human pedals like a small pedaling requirements that get booted the way a boat needs an engine ? I’m just a small woman with big imaginations ....a mechanical system using round disks that feeds one another creating a charge that pushes the boat ...man powered ? but I think sounds as vibrational frictions will be some day used to power engine ..who knows !

You need to define what you mean by emissions free. I think completely emission free (assuming you’re talking about something that emits no products that pollute the environment or disrupt the climate) means that absolutely no part of any production or running of the vessel can be responsible for the production of any pollutants be it first party or third party. Something that currently seems impossible. But is so called ‘emissions free a helpful aim for the environment’ or is it simply a word used in marketing. Seems like a anti comment, love your videos just not sure what you’re agenda is for making this dream boat :)

Go for it guys, that is a real dream, it is one of the most nice things anyone can try. On top of all the ideas that I guess you are allready taking in mind, Lithium LIpo Batteries, electric motors with regeneration when sailing, powerfull solar array, induction cooking and solar bbq etc... Try Zero waste ideas, it is something that you can do just now without spending a fortune, will save you space on your boat, waste and time recycling trash. Cheers from Spain and best of luck.

Hello Riley, have you contacted the crew of Moonwave catamaran? They run a hybrid system (Torqueedo) and might offer some "real world" advice. www.moonwave.com/delivery-zero-fuel/ The other boat to contact would be Top Secret catamaran a Voyage 580, that was all-electric, but then decided to re-install diesel engines after a lightning strike. integrelsolutions.com/blog/2019/10/12/s-y-top-secret-has-installed-integrel-its-no-secret-voyage-580-catamaran/ I persoanlly would probably toy with the idea of getting a balance catamaran with running one hull with electric for propulsion and re-generation. Then install a diesel in the other hull as a safety/backup, and for additional electric generation when the electric-regen and solar are not enough. Most of the time you probably can get by with the electric motor. How ever there might be times when you need continuous propulsion over several hours, like a lightning strike, mast damage, and when trying to reach a safe bolthole in unfavorable conditions. Don't forget, a significant reduction is already an improvement, but out on the ocean safety is always paramount. You guys have enough experience to make the call, look forward to seeing what you go for. Fair winds.

Don't under estimate electric over hydrogen. It's way way way more efficient and weight ratio os steadily improving. also electricity is easy to get a hold of. There some conspiracy videos out on hydrogen boats that are so factually incorrect they can be. The weight estimate for lithium per kwh often 3-5 times larger than if you find the weight of a lithium car and divide the kwh on the weight of the car. So lithium are lighter than they claim and also cheaper.

and safer. and fast. larger battery more hp. some ev's have over 400 hp and none of them have 100 kwh. Get 400 kwh and you can have 1600 hp easy. The question is if the boat manufacturers are affected by the conspiracies and are on the hydro hype.

“ The term "Hillbilly" is used with pride by a number of people within the region as well as famous persons, such as singer Dolly Parton, chef Sean Brock, and actress Minnie Pearl. Positive self-identification with the term generally includes identification with a set of "hillbilly values" including love and respect for nature, strong work ethic, generosity toward neighbors and those in need, family ties, self-reliance, resiliency, and a simple lifestyle.”

Wow this is a big project. Been following for a few years now and seen amazing evolution and what I consider a small amount of time. Emissions free is is more then getting rid of the combustion drive engines and gensets. Alot of manufacturing emission can be offset when done correctly. But batteries are a big issue that need to be overcome. I have had ideas about solar producing hydrogen and stored, then the hydrogen run through a fuel cell to produce the needed power for extra propulsion and running accessories. Hemp batteries is another idea very but not yet developed. Just some ideas I've been playing with. Great work guys look forward to the future La Vagabond.

I had been looking into just that a few years ago. Make La Vagabonde into an emissions free vessel. Main things : Performance cat 45-55ft Dinghy: sail/row/motor. Oars and good rowing dinghy, + electric dinghy motor as secondary. Consider a sailable dinghy. Electric main motors, solar, hydro, lithium ion batteries. Rain water as main, water maker as secondary water supply. Solar distiller??? Look into rowing the cat (really needs min of 3 pple) Solar showers Food: Hydroponic leafy greens, harvest kelp out at sea for fertiliser, and food. Fish. Legumes/seeds/nuts (Sprout-able) if u lose cooking, u can sprout them. Fermented fruit - last 2 months in fridge. Fresh fruit for ocean crossing Compost toilets for hydroponic fertiliser (and kelp). All of this is searchable on the net. Its all being done, just nobodies doing it all.

Love the idea. Chasing a dream is what you’ve already done. I believe your brand/vision could be a huge benefit. I’ve watch the Silent videos and if you could implement a sailing optimized similar that would be amazing. Obviously the shadow of the sail is an issue. I still feel like more tech on the solar tech is on the horizon. Seems like the sails could have solar capture thread tech someday. I’m sure you know situation & ocean environment but with SO much energy in the ocean surely there are lots of potential for capturing that and storing in batteries. If you could get Elon Musk involved with his engineering teams and your experience plus all the branding of both you then it would be out of this world. I honestly think you’re headed for amazing inventions & success on this idea.

I know it's out of the strict sailing context, but we've been seeking an emission-free solution, too. There are direct and indirect ways to becoming green and CO2 free, in the absence of alternatives we've gone for the latter. I've documented our approach in a short video: alnets.info/work/pLxtr9SarmadlX4/video.html "Overland Vagabond" channel, episode "CS001 - We Go Green". Thanks.

I congratulate Riley for being a leader and looking to make a bigger impact on the sailing world through providing a push towards emissions free. That said I agree with the comments that a conversion of the Outremer would be the easiest way to make this happen. A quick refit with LI batteries, electric motors and sail drives, an electric Range, more solar and a DC generator for back up and they have a nearly emissions free boat without all of the emissions created in the supply chain building an entirely new boat. I remember the last videos with Riley dreaming about boat designs and sketching them on passage. I think this project has as much to do with his itch to play designer as it does to do it emissions free. To build a bit of a unique design likely leads to a semi custom or fully custom boat builder. And many exist, particularly down under. Curious to see this play out. Good luck Riley.
