    My 2008 human powered boat record makes it into the 2010 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records

    When we were in Whitefish, MT last weekend picking up some VI circumnavigation supplies at Target, we noticed they had the new 2010 edition of the Guinness Book of World Records in stock. I knew that they wanted to show Critical Power 2 and the 24 hour human powered boat distance record from Whitefish Lake last fall, so I flipped through the book and was very happy to find it on page 89. They chose a great photo taken by Sandy from Whitefish.

    My 2006 24 hour distance record also made it into the 2010 Guinness Book of World Records for the second time - although this time without a photo.

    We were able to finish sanding and painted two coast of anti-foul on WiTHiN on Friday. It took 3 of us to lift her and flip her upside down! It will take the 3 of us again to flip her back around so we can finish. We have today (Sunday) and Monday to finish wiring the solar panels to the battery, installing the last 3 seat compartment hatches, wiring in the nav light, installing 2 top deck cleats, installing the gear nets,  and about a half dozen smaller final items on the todo list. Then it’s lake trials on Tuesday and Wednesday at Glebmore reservoir. Again, if you are in town and would like to watch and participate, you are welcome to swing by!
