Education = Safety

Captain Maggie Hallahan is a Californian, she's a 60's baby with a family who spent most of their free time on the insanely beautiful California beaches. Naturally, after 30 + years swimming, boating,  coaching in the bay and co-founding Na Wahine O'ke Ki Outrigger Canoe Club,  she decided to purchase a yacht to convert to electric power. So again it's only natural that she will be documenting her journey and creating hand rails for others to follow the course to electric.

"Prevention is better than a cure. Let's be careful with ourselves, the wildlife, and the water. Allow the Bay to nourish itself back to health and safely enjoy its healing nature all at the same time. Our Bay needs boats that do not heave carbon monoxide in the faces of the people bold enough to challenge themselves out on the water." Capt. Maggie Hallahan

Building Communities

"The Bay Area population has grown to nearly 8 million. We need a clean and healthy bay for this moment in time and for the time of our unborn children and grandchildren.

My love for the Bay stems from many amazing experiences on and in the bay with family and friends. These shared experiences inspired my friends and I to build a community of outrigger canoe paddlers. We have found when we have easy access to the bay, we connect with the Bay's beauty and want to help restore it.

To accomplish our next step in our Bay Recovery Goals, we need this Project, Film, and Website to bridge a greater water awareness to the people in the Bay Area. Our Website will be a starting point to direct people to get local updates from the Bay Keepers and how to link up with Water Sport Groups and Bay Area Naturalist Groups." Capt. Maggie Hallahan

"The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence. The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane." Nikola Tesla
