The Man of Commerce

  #

Project for sailing vessels to maneuver in ports using electric energy from wind

  #
The car is not the only vehicle that can be propelled electrically. Lecturers at the Higher Nautical and Naval Engineering Technical School, Mikel Lejarza, Jose Ignacio Uriarte, Miguel Ángel Gómez Solaetxe and Juan Luis Larrabe are part of a research team working on an innovative project: to have a sailing boat that can undertake port manoeuvres (such as mooring and unmooring) using electric energy obtained from the movement of the wind in their sails when sailing and thus reduce the use of fuel and the emission of waste and noise. Having the research skills in this field, they are working against the clock, given that their goal is to have the prototype operational in two years.   more...

Boat Sharing

  #
boat sharingWhen you add up the cost of buying a boat, insurance, and marina fees, not to mention the unavoidable maintenance costs, the thought of owning a yacht (or even a small boat) may be enough to scare you right out of the water. This is particularly true in today's tough and uncertain economy, when the last thing many of us want to do is add another set of monthly bills to our financial burdens. There may be options, however, that will help you spend time on the water without spending all your hard-earned cash in the process, and you might find one is the perfect solution for you.  more...

  #
Morning: The paddle started in the backwaters of Lansing's power dam, with three smoke stacks looming, our destination for the first of two portages as we pass through. This city is evidence it's an urban river, a forgotten "lost highway" of commerce that once helped farmers get grain to market.
