Comments Off on Solar-Powered, Concrete Hull Boat

Carter Quillen is an engineer who bought an old, concrete hulled sail boat named the ‘ Archimedes’  and, instead of refitting it with new masts, decided instead to turn it into the largest solar powered concrete hulled boat in the world. The ‘ Archimedes’  is a 50 feet (15.24 meters) long, with a displacement of 20 tons and is able to travel at up to 5 miles per hour (8 km/hour) powered solely by a 5kW solar array. Quillen is traveling along the Intercoastal Waterway as an advocate for microgrid energy production as well as using his boat as a demonstration platform for sustainable technology. In addition to solar electric propulsion, the ‘ Archimedes’  also uses solar power for its refrigeration, A/C, and water heating, and the solar panels are also being developed to be deployed in a funnel configuration for rainwater catchment. Quillen is also campaigning for greater use of solar power in Florida, noting that “the ‘Sunshine State,’ ranks 20th nationwide in solar energy use per capita.” Link: Ship of Imagination video link
