Our journey is just beginning and we invite you along as we push the limits of electric propulsion on our Solar Catamaran.  Over the journey we take, you can experience first hand the feeling of being aboard a solar electric catamaran.  Discover the advantages and disadvantages of electric boating today and meet the owners Jim and Arden.

Over the last five years we completely outfitted and installed a very robust solar electric solution on a classic 1964 Bill O'Brien 8M Bobcat Catamaran.  The catamaran was completely restored more or less.  Now completely outfitted with almost everything you can imagine and then some.

Some more obvious things we are still getting geared up for:  Survival type items, one more Honda 2000 and a couple more 48v battery chargers makes us unstoppable.  Some crab traps and some fishing gear.  Of course freedom to live the dream now.  We are ready all we need are some survival type Patrons along for the journey!!! 

Welcome aboard Vessel BLACK HOLE SUN (MMSI: 316031036) is a solar electric catamaran and currently sailing under the flag of Canada BLACK HOLE SUN has 8m length overall and beam of 4m.  It was designed by prolific ship designer Bill O'Brien in 1964 and is the forerunner of many modern or not so modern catamarans depending on your perception of modern.

Here on the Black Hole Sun we produce so much video you really have to be a nimble viewer to keep up with it all.  For that reason the Swashbuckler designation will apply to all videos and rewards.  You will get the good with the bad.

For two-thousand a month I will take you on a journey anywhere in the Pacific North west waters of Canada.  I will roll video non-stop for the entire trip and record it all with as many live video broadcasts as possible.
