This is now my favorite boat ever.

I do not know how I lived so long without knowing about The Martini 1.5 Experimental Boat. I MEAN WE SHARE THE SAME NAME. This full-suspension boat can tackle big waves, remain level and I am pretty sure just about eliminate seasickness completely (chronic seabarfs….I haz it). And the concept behind the name…ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT.

Not long after that, he moved on to the idea of the Martini: a boat that rides so smoothly, no wave will spill your cocktail. -Alex Davies,Wired Magazine

Kim is a Senior Oceanographer at Sea-Bird Scientific. She received her Ph.D. in Physical Oceanography from the University of Washington in 2010. Her goal in life is to throw expensive s**t in the ocean. When not at sea, she has used observations from moored, satellite and land-based instruments to understand the pathways that wind and tidal energy take from large (internal tides) to small scales (turbulence). Her current mission is to make your oceanographic data be the best data it can be.
