Letter Re: Bug-Out Boats Revisited


Regarding bug-out boat power generation, I just wanted to add that there is a tow-behind unit that generates power while under sail from the water flow.

I’ve always thought a sailboat in warm waters would be a pretty nice escape, especially Cats with their low draw and excellent access, much more living space, and top speeds.

However, there are a couple concerns:

  1. If it’s a true EOTW scenario, establishing any “community” or tribe from such a mobile homebase would seem to be very difficult and going within sight of land could put you in danger of being easily run down by gangs in powerboats.
  2. How much firepower can a boat withstand without danger of sinking?

HJL: Anybody?
