The Solartanic on the Charles River in Boston.
Debra and Kevin cruising Lake Boon in style. Its a heck of a lot of work to build a boat, but its all worth it the first time you sail around the lake in your own boat!
Some more pictures of the Solartanic....
Electrical inspector "Frisky" checks out my slightly mismatched solar panels, mounted on the dock. Last year I had a single 12 volt panel. This year I added a second panel to support 24 volt operation. More details can be found in the "solar notes" section.
The following pages show some of the voyages of the Solartanic -
(Right) - Picture with roof raised. Note the two "park bench" type seats. There is a third seat in the front of the cockpit facing aft. With the roof up, the Solartanic comfortably seats 6 people.
(Below) - segmented hatch covers opening over center seat. Also note details of the funnels and lifeboats.
