Watershed Innovations yesterday hosted a gathering of executives and engineering students to begin development of a quiet aluminum fishing boat with electric propulsion.

Correct Craft is partnering with 14 students from the University of Central Florida’s senior engineering program on the electric boat and other projects. Representatives from UCF, SeaDek and Torqeedo met with engineers from SeaArk Boats at the Correct Craft facility in Orlando, Fla., to discuss construction methods.

“It was great having all of our partners come together to discuss developing a quieter aluminum fishing boat,” Sean Marrero, Watershed president, said in a statement. “Getting outside ideas is a vital part of the work we are doing at Watershed Innovations. Collaborating with the students has also brought a lot of excitement to the project and is a reminder of the bright future we see for the boating industry.”

Watershed expects the project to be completed by the spring. 

The students represent mechanical engineering, computer science, computer system engineering and electrical engineering.
