Solar Boating on the G&S Canal and the mighty Severn on Caracruiser Pike Lock Boat
2019 we decided to see if it was possible to convert our 40 year
Caracruiser to solar powered electric propulsion.
2021 - G&S and River Severn Trip
used solar power quire successfully for long trips o canals, we started
to wonder if it was possible to use Pike Lock Boat on the River Severn
- a navigation that strikes fear into some. This trip took us
from Saul Junction, currently the closest slipway to our home connected
to the national network, right up to nearly Worcester and back on a
four night excursion.
Pike Lock Boat, being solar powered, is
rather underpowered for such a trip so careful planning was undertaken
before setting off on what was to be our sunniest trip yet.
More to come......
