Duroboat Tour (Huntington, Tennessee)

*One per classroom per academic year.*

Activity Description:
Duroboat is a small aluminum boat manufacturing company located in Huntington, TN, convenient to travelers along I-40 or US Highway 70, Broadway of America. Duroboat manufactures small high performance aluminum boats that are unique because of a patented process that does not require welds or rivets. In the Summer of 2009 2 young women piloted a 16 ft open Duroboat 6000 miles on Americas Great Loop. This circumnavigation of the eastern 1/3 of the US and parts of Canada included many rivers, the Gulf of Mexico, the Intercoastal and the great Lakes. This boat is on display at the factory.

Outcomes:
Students are exposed to a unique form of manufacturing and experience the engineering design process up close. Duroboats are carefully created from aluminum. Students learn about the benefits of aluminum construction and the decisions that boat designers make to increase functionality.
