On the first stage, Aurelia sailed about 6,200 mm in 128 days. What energy sources has she used? How much energy was available? How was it used? After a deep look into the logbook, various formula collections and technical documentations, I can give you an answer in this article.Read more “Energy at sea”
As one of the first projects, the underwater painting was renewed at the vessel. This is necessary for two reasons:
- Protection from osmosis damage
- Protection from vegetation by algae/smallpox and other marine animals
Protection from osmosis damage

At the beginning of my plans it was the question of these two. But the more I deal with the electric propulsion for sailing yachts, the greater the room for options. At some point I just have to start. But as long as the initial setup and the ship are not fixed, some research can not hurt. Besides Oceanvolt and Torqeedo are certainly other options. First of all Elco, a traditional manufacturer of marine engines, there is also Electric Yacht from the USA and now Bellmarine, which I didn’t really have on the list yet.Read more “Torqeedo or Oceanvolt – the right question?”
What has been achieved?
- At long last, the time has come. The project website is online and contains the most important information for potential partners and supporters. The original plan was to use the Ervolution-Shop to sell project items. I laid it ad acta yesterday, although it is with its 3-clicks to the checkout unbeatably fast. But with the use of Woo-Commerce, I am much faster and more flexible in the creation of the articles and SEO. Within a long evening, the shop was up and running. Too bad, so nothing will be done with programming ;-).
Lately I wrote an article about strategic product management. For a better understanding of the methods I created a imaginary company with samples for vision, mission etc. Along the way I came up with the idea of trying out the developed method on myself. This is likely to have far-reaching consequences. The next weeks where filled up with preliminary considerations and discussions with friends, relatives, charter companies and yacht yards. As the result, today I start the project “Vision 2”. Project is probably an understatement. Rather, it will probably achieve more program or journey character (in the sense of the PMBOK PMI). The latter at least fits in the word sense. At the kick-off in a quiet little room, the basic elements of the journey were created. They include vision, mission, strategy and SWOT analysis, business model, business case, communication plan, blog site and backlog. Extracts and results thereof will be published on this site. Now it is important to bring them to a stable level in the next few weeks. On the 1st Advent at the latest the block should be public in order to achieve the further milestones.
