Power-Row 15.5’

Post by DownhillSailor »

I am new to Glen-L designs, but not new to boat building. This winter’s project is the building of a Power-Row 15.5’ skiff. I am very enthusiastic about this boat and even more enthusiastic about touring the local waters with it. My companion is becoming less likely to sit on a thwart. I would like to replace the center thwart with a ‘beam’ that runs fore and aft along both sides. That should solve structural concerns? Taper the sides to fit the curve of the boat. Maybe put a support to the floor to make the shelf strong enough to hold a temporary rowing bench.
Put a nice canvas chair in for her to sit on.
I would love ideas and advice.
Thanks, Gerry
