Simon bought his boat in 2017. When he bought Old Dog, it had already sailed around the Pacific Ocean three times, but had been sitting in the same spot for 12 years when he found it.
When Simon bought Old Dog, it had a functioning diesel engine, but he still opted to shift to an electric motor and go fossil fuel free with his boat. A large part of the reason he made the switch was to be more environmentally friendly. Solar panels and lithium batteries had come down in price enough that it made sense to him to make the conversion.
