Here Comes The Sun?
Boatbuilder Dan Miller is hoping to be at the forefront of a renewable-energy trend in pleasure boats. He and his crew at Belmont Boatworks have built the first completely solar-powered fiberglass passenger boat using the technology developed by physics professor David Borton. Solar Sal launched successfully in April. In Biddeford, Matt Tarpey is working to market small working electric boats that charge at dock-based charging stations. The hope is that more and more Maine boaters and boatbuilders will embrace zero-emission technologies.
