  Electric Boat Corporation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Electric Boat, a division of General Dynamics Corporation, is a major contractor for submarine work for the United States Navy.
Built by Electric Boat were the first nuclear submarine, USS Nautilus, which was launched in 1954, and the first ballistic-missile submarine, George Washington, in 1959, amongst others.
Electric Boat also did preservation work on Nautilus, preparing her for her berth at Groton's Submarine Force Library and Museum where she now serves as a museum of submarine history.

 Electric boat - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
While most boats on the water today are powered by diesel engines, and sail power and gasoline engines are also popular, it is perfectly feasible to power boats by electricity too.
Electric boats were very popular from the 1880s until the 1920s, when the internal combustion engine took dominance.
Electric boats, with their historically limited range and poor performance against a strong headwind or current, have tended to be used on inland waterways.

 Levarge v. Electric Boat Corporation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
During the federal proceedings, the ALJ found that the decedent and Electric Boat had an employee-employer relationship from 1956 through 1992, and that the decedent was exposed to asbestos dust and debris until at least June 24, 1979, when he left production work for the job of trade planner and, later, process analyst.
Admittedly, Electric Boat’s attempt to meet its initial burden of producing rebuttal evidence was rejected by the ALJ because said evidence was not “specific and comprehensive.” The ALJ observed that Dr. Gaensler had conceded the claimant had bilateral pleural plaques, which resulted from the decedent’s exposure to asbestos dust and fibers.
Indeed, the risk to Electric Boat was greater under the LHWCA than it would have been under chapter 568, insofar as there was no apportionment scheme made available by the Longshore Act based upon a division of insurance liability for successive periods of asbestos exposure.

 Watersports insurance Electric boat, more information about Electric boat
The boat is not directly polluting the water in which it is sitting, as are most diesel- and gasoline-powered boats.
If an electric boat is to have sails as well, and will be used in deep water (deeper than about 15 m or 50 ft), then a towed generator will help build up battery charge while sailing.
Electric outboards have for some years provided an ideal drive systrem for inland waterway fishermen, being quiet and pollution-free so as not to scare away or harm the fish and other wildlife.
