Navy's boathouse, Hubbard Hall, recently underwent a total and complete renovation, along with repairs and expansion of the existing wharf and floating docks. The approximately $18 million government project modernized Hubbard to compete with the best boathouses and athletic facilities in the country.
The centerpiece of the project is the state-of-the art tank facility, which accommodates 16 athletes rowing at speeds close to six meters/second, enabling the oarsmen to receive better sport-specific training during the winter months. The other areas of the boathouse were reconfigured to create three ergometer areas, larger locker rooms, a new video/team meeting area, industrial laundry facility, a designated small boats aisle in the shell area, and a new shell repair bay; all while refurbishing our beautiful awards lounge.
The "apron" and docks were restored and expanded to launch eight boats at a time. The reconfiguration allows boats to land, be cleaned and stored quicker and more efficiently. The boathouse was modernized to include video and audio equipment installed in the tank and erg rooms; new spacious locker and shower areas have been designed specifically for the teams needs; and grand trophy cases with a championship picture wall in the N-Room display the rich and storied tradition that is Navy rowing.
