A recreational rowing shell
Rowing or sculling is a fun and invigorating way to get in shape. The feeling of gliding over the water at a high rate of speed with nothing more than people power is indescribable. The problem is that most craft suited to this sport are expensive and, in the past, trying to build your own was not easy.
Our Stitch-N-Glue method changes all of that. Just about anyone can build our SCULLING SKIFF quickly, easily, and with only a minumum of tools. Two sheets of 4mm x 4' x 8' plywood plank the entire boat. When these thin metric panels are used, the finished weight will be comparable to the costly production jobs. In fact, the original prototype hull weighed only 39 lbs. ... incredible for a 17' boat.
Although you can equip your SCULLING SKIFF with a production sliding seat/sculling assembly, our plans even include complete details and Full Size Patterns to build your own sliding seat and riggers from readily available materials. There's no reason to deny yourself any longer. You can now have your own high-performance, high-tech SCULLING SKIFF with just a few days of fun and not even miss the money it takes.
COMPLETE PLANS include FULL SIZE PATTERNS for the bottom, sides, butt blocks, forward and aft frames and deck beams, and decking. Includes material listing and layouts, with instructions and STITCH-N-GLUE manual, plus patterns for making your own riggers and sliding seat assembly.
