Electric Ride


Last October, the Lakeland Boating staff spent a warm, sunny, fall day out on a Duffy Electric Boat, courtesy of our good friends at Chicago Electric Boat Company.

Publisher/ Captain Bing O’Meara took staff on a sightseeing tour through the Chicago River and around some of the city’s most famous architectural landmarks. It was an awesome experience — totally unique from the water’s vantagepoint — and one we highly recommend!

Watch for our more in-depth piece about this staff outing, Chicago Electric Boat Company and its electric boat rentals in next month’s (September 2014) issue of the magazine.
