Solar-Powered Speedboat - No Kidding

"Solar-Powered Speedboat Goes on Sale in Netherlands"
FOXNews (May 28, 2008)

"It'd make Sonny Crockett from 'Miami Vice' proud — in a totally 'green' way.

"Dutch researchers at the Technical University of Delft have developed what they say is the world's first solar-powered speedboat, and it's got all the luxurious trimmings one would expect.

"According to maritime engineers Nils Beers and David Czap, the idea for the Czeers (a combination of their last names, and pronounced "Cheers") Mk I began as a sketch on the back of a beer coaster at a local pub."

The 33-foot speedboat's 150 square feet of solar cells push it along at 35 miles an hour.

Not bad at all. I'm glad to see that 'green' inventors are developing technologies that are clean and effective.
