Wave-Powered Boat 

69-year-old, Japanese sailor, Ken-ichi Horie, will shortly set out on yet another pioneering voyage, a journey of 4,350 miles from Hawaii to Japan in a wave-powered boat. It will be a world record for the longest distance traveled by a wave-powered boat, which is being described as the greenest nautical propulsion system since the sail.

Read more about this fascinating craft in an article by John Geoghegan and more about the legendary Ken-ichi Horie at SolarNavigator.
