THE IDEAS BEHIND EXLEX

Finally there is a 95 page long text in english about the ideas behind Exlex.

You find the text under the heading EXLEX on the start page. There is also a swedish version of the text. Scroll down a bit belov the donation buttons and the link to the swedish version and you find the link to the english version at the bottom of the page.

I very much appriciate any donation. The money goes straight to the project. I will to pay the rent for the about a yearent for my flat and workshop. I cannot sublet my apertment or workshop as it filled up with to much books and tools (10 000 books)

I will also help to pay for a tracker going to the Iridium satelites. That way I can send SMS that you may follow my voyage.

To those that already have donated I give my sincere thanks.

A BILGEBOARD ADDED

The one place where windward sailing is neccesary is just north of the equator heading south. There I will meet the south east trades. Also the equatorial current will poush me west. If I cannot make good enough to windward I will miss the Brazilian east corner and be forced up into the North Atlantic.

The weather sight windy.com illustrates what i mean:

To increase my chanches I have added a bilgeboard. To the port side. I made it as big as possiblble. Still I had to sacriface 10 liters af water.
Below are some pictures:

There is still some work to be done.
