" While here's definitely true, the cause for the solar goes
far beyond that. For example, it dramatically decreased Peukert Effect on lead acid batteries. Without moving into a long winded technical dialogue, this effect has a poor effect on batteries when the boat is under power, reducing the instantaneous means of the energy storage cells, and the solar input helps to minimize that effect, thus expanding the useful range the boat can travel on a given charge. This also helps the lead acid batteries to higher compete in opposition t other chemistries, comparable to nickel and lithium based batteries at lower fee. A fresh boat making waves in South Florida, and it runs on batteries. The Endeavour Green Company, a part of the Endeavour Catamaran Corporation, showed off it's "green" boat. Co owners, Nancy Frainetti and Jeff Stringfield, traveled from Saint Petersburg to Stuart. They did it all on battery
power, no gas or diesel fuel needed, unless you wish to use the back up generator on board. The Endeavor Green Company created the boat, that is akin to a gas or diesel fueled deck boat. The starting cost is around $42,000. The owners say it's worth the price, and it helps the atmosphere.
