Self-Reliant Ecoship

The line on the photo is not a fishing line. It is connected to my hydrogenerator at the stern of Easy. It tows a propeller through the water, generating 50W of electrical energy. Then I have solar panels and a windgenerator. The propulsion of Easy is by the wind. I only burn diesel to run the engine when there is no wind, when docking or during difficult reef passages. When at anchor, we use our dinghy to get to shore. This dinghy has a petrol outboard engine. I will miss this green lifestyle when back at home.
