Electric/Solar Boat Completes Voyage of Hope for Breast Cancer Awareness up Florida's Atlantic Coast

On Wednesday, November 4, the owner of a St. Petersburg-based electric boat company, Nancy Frainetti, and her sister Paula Frainetti completed a nine-day, 360-mile trip in an all-electric, solar powered boat up the length of Florida’s Atlantic Coast in a "Voyage of Hope." The purpose was to raise awareness and funds for breast cancer support services of The Donna Foundation, which serves the critical needs of First Coast women living with breast cancer within a 16-county area of Jacksonville.

Nancy Frainetti sells electric, solar powered boats at the Electric Marina in St. Petersburg. Her company was a sponsor of and exhibitor at St. Pete Drive Electric Day, and her electric boat served as the float for the Suncoast Sierra Club's entry in last June's Pride Parade on Central Ave., the location of Sierra Club's state office.
