Electric Houseboat Tour and Ride

Blog

During our time at the Flea Off Market, we were approached by Eric Bookstrom, who converted a traditional houseboat to run as an electric vehicle (with an electric motor and batteries).  He offered a tour and cruise to our members–and who were we to say no!

We toured his setup and took a ride on the Ohio River.  He even had racking installed for putting solar panels on in the future.  Talk about a unique and impromptu Drive Electric Week event!

Here is a short video.  Notice how quiet it is.  No engine noise means you can hear each other talk!
