Snooze and you lose...I just called VOA this afternoon and heard that the
Megavolt was sold...no biggee...good for Tim!  And good to see another EV
stay local.

BTW- my EV (The Reach Of Tide 6HP ETEK electric boat) just got relaunched
this past weekend and we had a nice 20-mile all-electric downriver motor
tour from Portland to the Columbia River and down to its moorage off
Caterpillar Island.  I expect to be changing from Lester 36v chargers to my
homebuilt chargers using modified Vicor Megapac PFC power supplies packed
with 8 adjustable 48v, 150w DC/DC converter modules.  I expect around 80%
efficiency w/98%+PF and 1200w per Megapac.  I may stuff as many as 3 of
these, for up to 100amps of shorepower charging at the right docks...
