Come see how even historic boats can help save energy The Center for Wooden Boats in Seattle will host an exhibition of electric-powered boats and other low impact electric technologies for recreational boaters at a special on the docks event Sunday May 19th from 11am to 5pm. At the event, people will see boats large and small that are powered by electricity. Electric Boat Day @ the Center for Wooden Boats is being put on by CWB volunteers.
Through its emphasis on maritime history, the Center for Wooden Boats already actively showcases electric-powered boats that were designed in the 19th and 20th centuries. We will use this link with the past as a springboard to advance new, low impact boating technologies to further serve our community and boating enthusiasts. During the electric boat event at CWB, public rides will be given on the museum’s own clean and quiet running electrical powered boats.
