Electric boats on the Huon

We are used to having our own electric boat Nancy cruising quietly around Franklin, but the Zelecta  which joined her for the steamboat rally on Sunday is an entirely different electric beast, a chris-craft replica powered by a great bank of batteries instead of a V8.  We think this is the first time she has been down here since she was built in the Wooden Boat Centre.  We are already plotting to lure her back.  For more about Zelectra see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rypwCDOCdZ0
