Bamboo can grow 121cm 47,6 inches in a 24 hour period with one hour burst of speed more than one meter. That is a world record and impressively fast. But my my boat will be much faster. She may average 3 knots or 133344 meter in 24 hour. But that is slow compared to a airplane which crosses oceans i a few hours. However the sense of speed of bamboo growth or my boats speed is big and that is one of the reasons why it is not boring to spend months at sea in her.
