REALITY EN SHTICK
To the tune of "Yes, we have no bananas," we have no video today. Or tomorrow, but maybe someday, even if I have to make it myself. There's a story here, and I'm just trying to get it, and tell it, straight. Nevertheless, there IS video today -- if not much -- as per the link listed below.
Suggestion: To placate your justifiable bummer, save this teaser 'till last and watch it on the show notes page for this episode at OutRigMedia.
ONE, TWO, THREE OR FOUR (yes, 4) HULLS?
This Caper is mainly a report on the current status of the OutRig Project. It describes the cast of characters involved in determining that status, plus something of how these individuals have come to be involved.
While there is no conclusion on the main issue — how the Project will integrate with the Mariners Museum — still there is cause to be excited about the possibilities. And speaking of possibilities, it just may happen that four-hulled watercraft will take over the world.
Listen as I tell you about a brand new 4-hulled boat.
A BOAT FOR TWO BUBBAS
This Caper tells of evolving a small catamaran for taking two big boys fishing, with nine chances to get out and back.
Those chances are: one breeze, two batteries, four legs and two hulls. These hulls are set just wide enough apart to permit real bubbas to really bounce around. This combination of features is unprecedented, and as multihulls go -- past, present and future -- this bucket is a real boot in the butt.
THE ANCIENT FUTURE
This is my first attempt at looking back on our contemporary multihull stories from the fictional vantage of about 150 years ahead in the future.
It is an experiment, done mostly for the fun of it, but hoping to suggest the role that multihulls may play in the long term saga of man's relationship to the sea, to the Planet, and to himself -- ourselves.
In order to decide how much of this frolic you want to hear, we really need your feedback on this Caper. Please drop a line to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come on, let's OutRig!
(Note: This show episode is what Jim has termed an "Ancient Futurecast" - Jim's attempt at a fictional Capercast)
