Electric Seas is a resource for the worldwide community of electric boaters and anyone interested in safe boating and clean seas. This website aims to provide current news and information on this subject, and to serve as a place for industry representatives and interested individuals to meet and discuss electric propulsion as an alternative to combustion propulsion for recreational watercraft. Useful features on this website that you will find are: a collection of news found on the web and original posts about electric boating on the main blog page, a forum for discussions about anything related to electric boating, a commercial directory of companies that are involved in electric boating, a collection of technical resources, an events calendar to help plan community events, a marketplace for electric boating related books, original designs and gear, member profiles to get to know your community and integration with other social media platforms such as facebook, twitter, and Yahoo.
To join Electric Seas, it's easy and of course, free! You can use your facebook, twitter, Google or Yahoo IDs to sign in and then create your own profile or one for your company. If you have an electric boating related company you are welcome to promote and share information about it with us. Regular members of Electric Seas can participate in the forum and comment on blog posts. If you would like to add content to the blog or help moderate the forum, please let us know. Electric Seas can be whatever the community wants and will be as useful as we all make it.
The Electric Seas website is maintained by the The Electric Seas Organization, a non-profit organization (California registered public benefit corporation, seeking 501(c)(3) status) which was formed to educate the general public about electric auxiliary propulsion for recreational sailing vessels. We believe that electric power systems are the ideal choice for auxiliary propulsion on recreational sailing vessels, as well as many other types of watercraft in general. The Electric Seas Organization intends to serve as an advocate for clean and safe propulsion systems on watercraft through this website, through attendance at boat shows and through outreach efforts. We also intend to promote and sponsor a fleet of electric powered vessels to demonstrate the advantages of electric propulsion. Our demonstration fleet is available to show to the public and some are being tested to their limits to mark the path to the future.
Our members and supporters are committed to helping to make our seas cleaner, the world more secure and our experience on the water safer and more enjoyable.
