    I can't get the video to work here - probably because it's a shockwave file.

    Here's the link

    That's a model of the Suntory Mermaid II in which veteran Japanese solo sailor Kenichi Horie plans to sail from Hawaii to Japan.

    Having previously crossed the Pacific in a boat made of recycled beer cans, Horie-san is my new personal hero.

    Will Bill Murray be sponsoring this? ;)

    Some wonderful engrish on the main site too:
    To sail in the outboard machine and the sale for the emergency for going of the port in and out, motive power is equipped with the sale though is only a wave. It is supposed not to use it to the last for the emergency while navigating selling similar as a rule though this outboard machine is useful also for the power supply securing.

    Still, sounds awesome, and good luck to him.
