The KID-ROW is only 6' long but a bundle of fun for the lighter and smaller kids. An ideal craft for swimming pool, pond, or similar protected water. Watch how fast they develop rowing skills, and in a project they can help build. Sanding edges and slapping on some paint can be done by even the youngest.
The KID-ROW has three watertight compartments that will keep the boat afloat even when flooded with water. (From the voice of experience: kids seem to love filling a boat with water???)
Only a single sheet of plywood is required; inexpensive 1/8" luan "door skin" plywood was used on the prototype. With a full size pattern for every part in the boat, and using the Glen-L simplified Stitch and Glue method, building is quick and easy. Details are furnished for building your own oars and oarlocks from readily available materials.
Make your favorite youngster the envy of their peers, and become their special favorite person... guaranteed!
