Electric Aircraft on Water

Electric Aircraft on Water

Electric boats are, in many ways, more advanced than electric vehicles on land. Many have complete energy independence from solar structure. Seven years ago one circumnavigated the world on sunshine alone. There is a huge choice of electric boats from dinghies to large craft, inland and seaborne. Battery electric ships with massive batteries ply the great Chinese rivers.
