The solar electric dink

When it come time to repower your dinghy, you might want to go solar. A company called Float Green will provide you with a solar panel, a battery, an electric motor and the associated wiring for a solar electric power solution to getting your dink around the anchorage. Will voyagers heading back to their boats after a night of attitude adjustment ashore make the change from starting a cold gasoline outboard to coaxing the maximum juice form the dinghy’s battery? The saltwater power package goes for $999.
