Hope I picked the right address off my list.
I said I would send a photo of the skin on frame wherry I built. 18ft with a 33" beam. Weighs about 40 lb.
These oars are terrific. Square in section and hollow, made from spruce and cedar, they weigh less than my carbon oars. I built them from plans at Wayland Marine.
She rows very well but the seat is low, almost as low as your feet, so I felt the pull in the hamstrings until I got used to it. Plans for the boat came from Dave Gentry and he has others. Here's a link: http://www.gentrycustomboats.com/RUTH%20page.html
It was good to see you again
It's stunning -- and the best part is to see who is back rowing. Fig, so thrilled to see you back in the saddle, so to speak -- and at Sound Rowers races. Figures, you're back in the circuit and I'm out of the loop on the East coast. Congrats on finishing your gorgeous boat -- and doing Commencement Bay. Sorry I missed the race and you.
Miss you all already,
