This is an idea I had a long time ago that I wanted to visualize a little better. The basic concept is to make a sail boat / trimaran out of a 40ft and a 20ft shipping container and some bundles of PVC pipe (among other things). There is a more detailed explanation on my blog at http://minimlaintentions.com.
If anyone thinks the idea has merit and would like to suggest changes, please download and modify the blend. Sintel is thrown in to provide scale.
