Solar-powered Liberty ferry eclipsed.

Circle Lines' plans for a solar-powered vessel to run on its Manhattan to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, detailed in this earlier post, have been scrapped by the National Park Service, which licenses the concession, and which has elected to terminate Circle Line as the operator and replace it with a company called Hornblower Yachts. According to this story, Hornblower is best known for ferrying tourists across San Francisco Bay to Alcatraz.
