Come see the latest in Electric Boat Technology at eBoat Showcase II at CWB

 

Sunday, May 19th, volunteers at The Center for Wooden Boats have organized their second Electric Boat Showcase. 

From 11am to 5pm on that Sunday, visitors to CWB will see electric boats, motors and other technology designed to break boating of a dependence on fossil fuel.

Electric boats and cars were very popular in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. They were actually dominant until the electric starter and other advances in internal combustion engine technology and mass production of cheaper gasoline engines led to a decline in the use of electric drive vehicles. But history has a way of coming around again, and you’ll see how during this one day volunteer run event.

WHAT: Second Annual Showcase of Electric Boats and low impact electric technologies for recreational boating

WHERE: The Center for Wooden Boats, 1010 Valley Street, Seattle, WA 98019

WHEN: Sunday, May 19th, 2013, 11am to 5pm

COST: Free. (Donations gratefully accepted)
