The crew

In order to build this boat, there are many different participants in demand.
This page is still pretty empty and we would like to fill the gaps.
With “The Crew” we don’t just address the people who will actually live and work on board of Cachalote.
We need supporters in many different areas. Individuals or groups who help with their expertise in the following areas:

1. Desalinating products - which you would recommend, which work best, which require the least maintenance, which produce the most fresh water, which are the most ecologically friendly, which require the least power to operate, etc.?

2. Solar panels - which you would recommend, which work best, which require the last maintenance, which generate the most power in the least space, etc.? 

3. Wind generators - same questions: which you would recommend, which work best, which require the last maintenance, which generate the most power, etc.? 

4. Water-powered engines - anyone with good experience or evidence that Stanley Meyer's experimental water-powered car could actually work and be applied to our ship's engines, please contact me. Or any other workable technology to replace the need for diesel fuel would be welcomed. 

5. Financial advice and/or support - anyone is welcome to share his ideas on how to raise the money for Cachalote. 

6. Anything else you see in the design of the ship that could be improved to make the ship more advanced, eco-friendly, and self-sustainable. 
For all the above mentioned topics, we welcome new inventions and ideas in these areas. That's what Cachalote stands for.
