Updated 3.25.13. Recently, Drexel assumed the responsibility of facilities manager at its boathouse, Boathouse #6 or Bachelors Barge Club. In 2009, Drexel’s rowing teams began rowing out of the boathouse, which happens to be the oldest rowing club in the country.
The photos below show some of the most recent boathouse improvements which include new tile on the shower floors, new epoxy floors in the restroom, patched and cleaned walls in the main stairwell and corridor, and new stair treads. Outside, improvements consist of a newly-cleaned boat storage area with a gravel “floor,” as well as an updated main dock with pressure treated planks.
