AUOOSB Project Autonomous Unmanned Open Ocean Sailboat Project

Link = AUOOSB Project homepage

For those of you interested, I have created a site for the project I have been working on for the last year. I have decided to make the whole thing Open Source so this can be shared and developed with a bunch of IQs and not just my limited one! LOL

Anyway i hope you join in for the discussions and the ultimate goal of sailing this thing around the world autonomously.
