My name is Kevin Cassidy and I live on beautiful Lake Boon in Stow, Massachusetts. I wanted a boat for gracefully cruising around the lake - something quiet, non-polluting and just a little bit different. No existing boat I saw met all my requirements. So I built my own boat and named it the "Solartanic". Then I built this website to support a few main topics:

What are the practical realities of alternate energy? What can we do to help things along? Click on the AE links at left for my opinions and observations on AE in general and solar boating in particular.
Did you take a good picture of the Solartanic on one of her cruises? E-mail it to me via the "contact me" button and maybe I'll add it to the site.
In the meantime, take a closer look at the Solartanic.
