Solar Dinghy Conversion Kits!

25 May 2012
Wow! Three Sheets NW featured a great story about our Solar Dinghy & the conversion kits that are available NOW! We couldn't wait to share with you!

The conversion kits are eco friendly, lightweight, quiet, easy to use, and Run on the Sun! No need to carry extra fuel or the hassel of an outboard. They virtually fit all dinghy designs, with a boat speed of 3 - 5 knots, with a battery charge of 3 - 5 hrs, continuously charging if the solar panel is mounted to the dinghy as shown here in the picture.

Darren has engineered to ensure the kits are easy to use for everyone & very affordable compared to an outboard motor! Both Freshwater & Saltwater kits are now available for purchase. Please help us spread the word that this eco friendly option is available, or better yet, contact us to come by & try out a demonstation yourself!

For more detailed information, or to purchase online, kits are available through Gaia Marine Products

3 months of blissful travelling, until an incident with the engine off Quadra Island, forced us to be towed in to Campbell River and get back to work!
