Questions about the next project


I  received many questions about the next project!


And here are some answers to the questions:


How long is the journey supposed to go?

The end is open, I see it as my pensioner life, so I hope many years …

.................................................................................................................


Is there a fixed route ?

No I just take off and decide on the way. Without any time pressure.

.................................................................................................................


Do you have a rough plan where the journey goes?

Yes, from my hometown Datteln I can go anywhere it is the largest canal junction in Europe.

.................................................................................................................


Will you report live underway
on your website !

Of course, I have done that on all my trips. Here in Europe and with today's technology it will be much easier than on the past trips out of the bush in Alaska or Canada !

.................................................................................................................


Will you only be living on the boat when you are underway?

Yes, because I like it very much, I really enjoyed it when I was traveling with my ORCA in northern Canada.

.................................................................................................................


Are you filming again during the trip ?

Yes but only for me and the readers of my website.

There is no TV report planned, that was already too stressful for me during the trip with ORCA...

Something like that takes all the joy out of a trip!

.................................................................................................................


Will you use drones for filming this time ?

Oh yes, I will not miss the opportunity. There are nowadays not only drones that fly but also dive ...

.................................................................................................................


Could someone accompany you on short sections ?

It is not planned but you never know...

.................................................................................................................


Do you take pictures underway and post them on your website ?

Of course, as on the past trips, I think this time even more detailed !

.................................................................................................................



What will you eat underway and where ?

As on all my trips I will be cooking myself and store as much food in the boat as possible.

I want to be absolutely self-sufficient during the trip !


.................................................................................................................


Where do you get your drinking water from underway?


I hope I can use my Katadyn water filter again.

But I still have to do some research how it works with chemicals in the water and whether the katadyn can filter them out.

Unfortunately, the water in Europe is not as clean as in Alaska or Canada....

.............................................................................


Will you use a lot of electronics on the trip ?

Oh yes, because I love the possibilities you have today with modern electronics ! E.g. night vision, thermal imaging, 3D scanning sonar, hydrophones, underwater cameras, and so on...

.................................................................................................................


Will you use solar panels ?

Yes as always, as much as I can fit on the boat!


.................................................................................................................


How will you finance the trip ?

Very good question...

I'm trying to spend as little money as possible on the way, just like on my Alaska trips.

I will only sleep in my boat, I will cook myself and so on.

Fuel costs will be very low, because I will use a foot pedal drive and an electric motor.

I am the engine or the batteries that are powered by solar panels.

When the time comes, I will sell almost everything I own.  Only  what  fits  into  the boat I will keep.

The farewell from my hometown will be final...

.................................................................


What will it cost to build the boat ?

I can not answer that now...

Building the boat will be the hardest part.

I need to keep the cost as low as possible, which is not easy at all in Germany !


.................................................................................................................


 Will you build the boat in Germany ?

As it looks so far, this will be impossible because the costs here for such a project are astronomically high, as always...

.........................................................................................................


Have you already found a designer who can draw you a suitable boat for you ?

I know one in the US that could draw me a foot pedal boat, but would love to find one here in Europe...


.................................................................................................................


If you have any question, drop me a Mail
