EarthRace coming to Florida (Miami)

Click for large view
The biodiesel powered boat "EarthRace" arrives in Florida this week prior to its attempt to set a world record for circumnavigation of the earth. EarthRace will be at the Miami Boat Show Feb 15th-19th. Having just visited EarthRace while it was docked in Charleston SC, I can vouch for the stunning appearance of the vessel. From the Maori inspired designs covering the futuristic curved hull, to the high tech cockpit, and including the Lord-of-the-Rings audio-book I noted stashed inside - this Kiwi skippered trimaran is definitely Click for large view worth a visit!

Turnkey "Appleseed" Biodiesel processor for sale in Cocoa Beach FL


A local biodiesel homebrewer is upgrading his system and looking to unload his existing Appleseed processor. (We've seen (and envied) Dan's VW diesel rabbit pickup.)

Dan says:

This will be a turnkey operation with everything from a pump to pick up wvo, a kit to perform proper titration, a How to Handbook, and a phLip test kit to test fuel quality. Storage drums and initial start up catalyst and alcohol can also be provided. All anyone would need is WVO!
