Key points -

Can be built in 3 different lengths for different sized rowers. 24', 26' and 28'. Beam, and WL beam, is 12" and that remains the same. All covered in the instructions.

Max rower size (recommended, not written in stone) is 230lbs for the 28' boat

Meant for rowers without a local club, or who just want their own boat. Perhaps they were on crew during college or high school, and want to get back into it without a major outlay of cash.

A "club boat" - will not compete with high end or carbon shells, but only cost a few hundred dollars to build (I spent about $300 to build the prototype).

Can be built in about 2 weeks part time, plus weekends, likely for around four hundred bucks.

Uses 1/2 a sheet of 6mm Okoume, and WRC stringers. Skin is 3.2oz polyester.

Instructions cover building the boats, plus building the complete rowing rig, oars and a roof rack.
