Just thought I'd share my geeky excitement about a vessel that's 100% solar powered and looks pretty cool (at least in concept):

As technology progresses, it might just be possible that in a couple of decades there will be a sizable fleet of solar ships!

This would be great for a planet that had no wind on the ocean. I really prefer sails. I bet it took a million barrels of oil to build this cool yacht.

Only when all the oil has run out will these vehicles be taken seriously.Solar and wind power is the obvious answer to all our energy needs but is still seen as a novelty,maybe one day we will see the light.A giant ball of energy hanging over our heads but still we look for dirty oil,what a joke.

True! However, this is just a tech demonstrator. I also think that solar needs to be back up by a contemporary sail system, I heard they can be quite efficient. A hybrid of sorts... Would be cool to have a completely non-polluting and free-to-sail system!
