    YOUR CRAZY!!!

    Just messin with ya. That iis awesome, I wouldn't mind trying that some day. I looked at your planned route, where do you plan on getting fuel when your in the middle of the Indian ocean? I imagine there is a lot of planning going into this. Best of luck to you and keep us updated!!

    I'm not an expert but I am willing to bet there is a chase vessel involved.

    We'll need a support chase boat carrying extra fuel across the Indian Ocean. Probably a fast cat. We're not having an easy time finding one. Thanks for your encouragement

    It should take about 3 1/2 months. 28,000km limited by the speed of the chase boat would make it about that long.

    Actually with the x-3 and x-4 hulls when the waves get over 4' you are more riding on them than bouncing over them
