The Boat – Slow Boat


The captain of the vessel, Bill Carlsen, is a professor of environmental education at Penn State University; this trip was his Sabbatical project.  The voyage of the Dragonfly was a year-long exploration around eastern North America, to learn about environmental sustainability, community development, natural history, and engineering.  We think our trip was the first “sustainably powered” circumnavigation of the “Great Loop,” the system of waterways that encircles eastern North America.  It’s certainly the first Great Loop voyage to be conducted in a solar-powered canal boat! “
