I give the company extra credit:  Not once, on their entire website, do they mention that trite and over-abused marketing concept, “green.”  Instead, we find a refreshingly different approach, such as:

“We build electric boats one at a time, very slowly.  They really are not ‘custom boats’ since the owner is an opinionated old man who enjoys building nice boats exactly the way that he designed them.”

I applaud what Ed Duggan and his company are bringing to the market.  Those of you who enjoy quiet rides on a pond or lake might find the Edoak Electric Skiff ideal for your needs.
