Here is a link to a video I made of my rowing adventure on March 7, 2014
My Thames Rowing Skiff is lapstrake construction built from planks of Lloyds 4mm 1088 Okume plywood. The planks and ribs are bonded together with the WEST epoxy system.What is your boat made out of Don? Any why aren't you wearing a life-jacket
My Thames Rowing Skiff is lapstrake construction built from planks of Lloyds 4mm 1088 Okume plywood. The planks and ribs are bonded together with the WEST epoxy system.
The boat is well constructed and has survived 850 miles of my rowing without showing any signs of wear.
I'm not wearing my life jacket because it is on the floor behind where I am sitting. I also have a flotation cushion on the floor in front of me.
If you look carefully, you can see the lifejacket on the floor in the photo below.
Mr. Kirwin would be most happy to build you a wooden boat like mine. He also builds wooden kayaks and canoes. That's his hobby (amateur wooden boat building) since he retired from professional cabinet maker.Ok, well, I wished I could say "oh yes, i know that type of boat construction" LOL, but I'll just say, if it's stood up to you rowing it 850 miles, I gotta get me one of those
