Creative first for Philippines

Were there's a will there's a way!

Filippino's are well known for their ability to mend, fix anything.

Lack of money being the main reason they are inventive, take that a step further and you will be surprised just what they are capable of producing!

Sorry guy's not allowed to post copyright thing......However worth looking up "Revolutionary boat powered by the Ocean" article by the BBC!

I do not see in the article any mention of HOW they are supposed to turn the wave action into electrical energy.  Also the comparison of a catamaran to a banka is quite strange in my opinion.  When I started reading I thought they were designing a boat where outriggers would flex and drive some type of generator, but the hull shown is a large basic triple hull catamaran.   :89:

Sorry to correct you a bit, Mike. Those are referred to as trimarans in the boating world...

They are awesome in the open ocean - very stable. However, should one encounter wind and/or sea conditions that might cause one to flip...then you are totally f*****.

I think it's a common concept that may just be tweeking a little.
