I'm not sure what's in the air (or maybe make it under the sun) these days but I just saw news from Bayer MaterialScience and DuPont talking about solar airplane and solar boat projects. I guess solar roofs are too boring nowadays ;-)
DuPont said it will provide innovative photovoltaic modules and high-performance marine coatings to PlanetSolar, expected to be the largest solar boat ever built. The boat will undertake the first world tour powered by solar energy in 2011.
