You may once have ridden this vessel. Thirty months ago you could have made a bid on it. Eighteen months ago it was topheavy and listing. Two weeks ago Paul Strubeck caught this foto. Might you call it a major haircut.
I caught Planetsolar on my way outatown, but bowsprite studied the first solar-powered circumnavigator up close and impersonal and shares these fotos.
Inside these caps are props. Click here and here to see the props.
Enjoy these views starting with this view looking forward along the portside and moving counterclockwise around the boat.
Click here for a compilation of clips taken over two years on Turanor PlanetSolar. And if you have 40 minutes to watch this video from the Caribbean to the Indian Ocean, you could like it. I especially liked the Singapore dry dock section beginning around 31 minutes in. And from yesterday’s NYTimes, here’s a story about the boat’s current research mission.
Many thanks to Paul and bowsprite for these fotos.
