Also note that every one of our playground slide derriere boats has three standard pairs of oarlocks For safe rowing carrying out a boat’s hull necessarily to be on its designed. So I've purchased plans for SCAMP and am looking forward to building her, that day can't get here soon enough for me.
I've been looking at various design that fit the bill for a fitness rowing boat, this keeps leading me back to mostly dory types and I want to make sure I'm not missing other designs that would be better suited. I know it makes for an awfully long list of designs, here are a few of the contenders I'm considering so far. CLC's Skerry for rowing only, might exceed my budget, possibly no option for a sliding seat but it would be worth it. That is a beautiful boat indeed, but SOF would male me too nervous, I'd always be worried about bashing a hole in it. I also can't help but wonder if this might be a boat best kept to the harbor and waterway and not suited to open water rowing. If you're dead set against single chine construction, his Liz is prettier, a larger pain to build, and no more functional. In either case, the cost of a drop-in rig and some carbon sculls will knock the stuffings out of $1000.
If fixed seat only is OK, Either of the above could be rigged that way at lower cost and there are lots of nice boats in the range.
Thanks, Sailboy3 - I agree, of course, that RUTH is perfect for his requirements, except for providing experience working with plywood panels. A couple of viable alternatives to RUTH - though heavier, far slower to build and much more expensive - are Ken Basset's Firefly and CLC's Annapolis Wherry.
Note that one is unlikely to realize any tangible performance increase by using a sliding seat in the shorter boats.


Welsford's 'Joansa' will be both lighter and less awkward to move around than the 'Light Dory'. Ran Tan, Liten Kuhling, Vernon Langille, Josef W., Merry Mouth, Imp, Macavity and a quiver of unamed 'yaks.
I kept clicking back and forth between the Joansa and the Light Dory when looking at John's designs, I think that Joansa is a beautiful boat but it might be more complex than what I'm looking for.
The Devlin Duckling 17 is on my list too but I keep looking at Sam's Egret and thinking that opting for a row only version would be closer to the mark. Athelas is a wonderful suggestion, and that link in the process reminded me to check my Gardner books.
As for Duckworks, if I spent too much time there I might not learn the opinion of my fellow forumites on such a life affirming decision as building ones own boat. Edit: I just noticed that the hull weight on Egret is much higher than I though, even stripped down for rowing only it would likely be too heavy to wrangle single handed.
There are so many choices, It's hard to stay focused on my original intent and not get caught in the desire to own the boat I want and not the one I need.

First however I would like to gain a little experience with epoxy and plywood panel construction, also building from plans now will help me decide between kit or plans later when SCAMP's time comes. You must be very proud, I envy you family man types at times, what a great bonding experience that must have been for you. Mainly the words cranky and unforgiving, I should mention that at 6' and ~240lbs this could prove to be a deadly combination. I will look at some of Jim's other designs though and see if there is something else there that catches my eye.


I think the AW would only be useful as a sliding seat rower, though the Firefly could easily be modified for fixed seat. I certainly do love the Wherry and Whitehall types I just put them aside from the start as I assumed they would be more time intensive or primarily strip built. Joel White's shearwater built just for rowing would be good as well, but is more complicated, and might stretch your budget. If anyone is aware of a Wherry or Whitehall design using glued lap I would love to look at it.
My 16 ft The Yale Harvard rowing pelt along of 1870 marked amp turning point Indiana rowing boat technology. Have a look for the article in WB about a cruise in Baja California in a adaptation of Joel White's longer Shearwater. The Annapolis Wherry Tandem offers pureblood performance on the water supply combined with breathtaking grace. I think the short one is too short for real exercise; I can and have gone faster in my 15' ducker which I consider a real nice rowing boat but not an exercise boat. Our boats are made inward the United States astatine our habitation plant in Gainesville Our knowledge in sliding seat rowing and lightweight expression far exceeds.
