Hull type: Traditional round bilge Whitehall rowing hull for wood or fiberglass construction. WOOD version features glued and edge-nailed "bead and cove" strip planking (no plywood is used in this version). FIBERGLASS version features single skin "one-off" fiberglass planking (C-FLEX). Hull is built upside-down over temporary form members in both cases.
Power: Oars, 8' to 9' long, one to three oarsmen.
Can the hull be extended or shortened? Extended, no. Can be shortened up to 10% by re-spacing the frames from the aft end of the stem to the transom a proportional amount. We do not recommend increasing the beam.
Trailer: Designed for use with Glen-L Series 1700 boat trailer plans.
* Will vary with type of lumber used.
