Greetings from Sweden

Thank you for this forum!
I'm part of a team working to solve a boating life challenge: how to equip boats for people to survive and even thrive on international waters, possibly without access to land for even 7 years. Easy-to-maintain electricity system (wind generator, battery, safety lights), water desaliniser, composting toilet, biogas digester, gas stove, and mariculture / aquaculture (cultivating food at sea) are top of the list.

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like an interesting project. Is there a website chronicling your research?

I'm tired of fast moves, I've got a slow groove, on my mind.....
I want to spend some time, Not come and go in a heated rush.....

the very first thing to consider is , How to get Amazon deliveries. Anything that floats will need parts.

Interesting. What do you do about food for 7 years, especially complex proteins?

Welcome to TF. Has to be one of the more unusual projects planned. Good luck with that.
