We have a wide variety of stock plans belonging to different segments of nautical interest, either for sportive leisure, or for commercial purposes. Brasileirinho when she belonged to Gerson Canton, the first client who ordered us the project.
The story we are going to tell in this article is that of the only Brasileirinho we have absolute confidence that it was built, which was baptised exactly with this name.
The boat, even though being initially baptised with the name "Brasileirinho", as a caterpillar which became butterfly, now is called "Spitit of Malabo".
Victor was attacked by pirates when crossing the north shores of Haiti, being looted of all his valuable belongings. In July 2015 Victor was still rowing northwards along the Intracoastal Waterway, his itinerary, in a route he called Goree Challenge. He endured a series of incidents, as when the hull`s under-body was bitten by a shark, fortunately for him without puncturing the hull sheathing, even though if that had happened, it wouldn`t represent a real danger, since where it was damaged was where the water ballast tanks are located, so no real risk of flooding of the interior would be possible.
Victor is a charming and good natured adventurer and for that reason he is conquering friends and supporters wherever he calls. Spirit of Malabo advancing towards her destination along the Intracoastal Waterway, now extremely well equipped, even though for the reduction of freeboard, we guess the displacement must have at least doubled. DFrom our part we must toast Victor for his accomplishment of successfully crossing the Atlantic Ocean with the Brasileirinho "Spirit of Malabo". A boat that will row and sail well is a common request that this little double ender is designed to fill. A recent addition to our list of small daysailers is this lovely half decked double ender in traditional plank on frame construction. Anyone seeking an introduction to the carvel method would do well to pause and consider this little boat. The model of a shallow, beamy daysailer is one seen elsewhere in this catalog:#107 Skylarkand#113 Jessieare close relatives. Performance under sail will not match that of the lighter, beamier dinghies in the catalogue, but nevertheless this is a delightful small daysailer.
This is an intricate piece of work and a good deal more time-consuming than single skin construction, but the result is very pleasing and should stand up well without a burden of maintenance.
Skill level is high as are all our clinker designs but this is not a difficult shape to plank and frame. The Whitehall design- often defined by the champagne glass transom shape as seen below, is a design with some 300 years vintage. Our Ontario WHITEHALL measures 16 feet in length with a maximum beam of 47" with a centre depth of 15". Rannoch boats are very carefully thought out and constantly developed as we continue to gain experience from individuals using them. Approximately 1600 hours is spent on producing each boat before handing it over the client. Each Rannoch design leaves the drawing board from internationally renowned naval architect, Phil Morrison. The natural shape of the boat on the waterline lends itself to being wider in the forward section of the hull.
Rannoch also places a large emphasis on creating bespoke rowing boats for individual clients. Location: Lakeland Fl USA OK the reference to the website provides some information. Please excuse my simplistic outlook on all things complicated, but wouldn't it be easier to cut off the end of the boat and fit a transome than cut a hole in the bottom of it to fit a motor? Frosty Previous Member   That square box at the back ( what is it a fridge ) could be converted to a transom with a hole cut out of the bottom of the boat and then boxed in.
You would still maintain the canoe stern for following waves when crossing the Atlantic for instance. Location: North for summer south for winter A lot of good thoughts, and I really like the cool factor of the Norwegian Gunning Dory.

When your crew arrives in Monterey, California with their boat two weeks before the start members of the New Ocean Wave team complete a process known as scrutineering.  In this process our team will scrupulously check each boat and all items of equipment to ensure it complies with the Race Rules and that all equipment is stored safely within the boat.
Pay Per Seat – We offer individuals the opportunity to buy a seat on a four person crew.


If you choose to setup your own crew then there are three options that you have when considering where to get your boat from. Buy new – There are  three main boat manufacturers who you can commission to build you a new boat find out more about them here. Next…find out about the courses and physical training that as an ocean rower you will need to complete before starting the Great Pacific Race. I have a lot of work to do on my Hyde before I get it in the water, so I can't fairly claim that my boat performs better, but looking at the Hyde and looking at my boat and rowing my boat, it is hard for me to imagine the Hyde not feeling like a barge in comparison. Do you have any shots of the boat out of the water illustrating the rocker profile and bottom shape? Location: Colorado more photos This should give you a better idea of shape. If I had but one comment of constructive criticism, it would be about the freeboard present for the river work you choose.
Calm to Class II-III, some shallow 4" deep rapids, 50' wide and 3' deep sections punctuated by 8' deep calm water holes, portaging(500 yards when dry season), some low overhanging tree branches at narrow 10' rapid sections, some large boulders projecting in some sections of rapids.

The American Boy's Handy Book, published in 1890, is full of plans and construction techniques for all kinds of things, including rafts, to be built with little more than an axe and a good supply of apple pie.
And once you've created the basic structure of your raft, you need to have a way to make it go where you want it to.
I would advise against relying solely upon sail for getting around on your raft, as that will only give you the ability to go downwind.
Bamboo seems like a very logical thing to use as it's easy to find and a lot easier to move around by yourself than logs. Ask MetaFilter is a question and answer site that covers nearly any question on earth, where members help each other solve problems. We are more easily identified with our line of offshore cruising sailboats, or with our collection of recreational motor yachts. He intended to row from Portugal to Brazil on her, but for personal reasons had to give up his plan and sold the boat to the American rower Victor Mooney. More plans were sold for clients from different countries, but we received no feedback from them informing how things were developing. Presently it belongs to the American adventurer Victor Mooney, an offshore rower, who already essayed doing the feat of crossing the North Atlantic in another offshore rowing boat, notwithstanding to no avail, since he had to be rescued at sea before reaching his destination.
After that frightening experience he had to endure another terrifying probation, when being robbed by pirates along the Haitiand territorial waters, what obliged him to land on a beach on the north coast of that country. Now we don`t feel ill at ease anymore when saying that we have designed an offshore rowing boat stock plan. It has enough beam and power in its sections to carry a rig to windward with some hiking out in stronger breezes.
Contained here are all the elements of plank on frame boat building at the smallest scale and in a shape that will present few difficulties to the competent woodworker.
This one is a little longer than her sisters and carries a small amount of outside ballast and an efficient gaff sloop rig. It is based on a traditional British beach boat model and its construction follows traditional practice. I have also thought it would be fun to build one of these with a small inboard and omit the centreboard. Because she was designed for California conditions, we planked her double skin on bent frames, to ensure stability of the wood, while preserving a traditional feel. It is a performance boat similar in many ways to #113 "Jessie", but of much simpler construction, lighter displacement and better off-wind speed.
It would make an excellent project for those interested in practicing traditional building methods. Generous beam and built-in buoyancy tanks fore and aft make this an ideal boat for learning to sail.
Using woodstrip epoxy building techniques, this 15' boat weighs in at 100 pounds (approx 45 kilos). Originally, this shape was made exclusively as a harbour boat; it was a taxi, a cargo vessel and all purpose boat for harbour activities. Each vessel is lovingly hand-crafted to a design that has been honed with many years of experience.
After the overall design of the boat, attention to detail is the most significant aspect we address because it’s got to work as effectively as possible for the end user.


First and foremost, safety is our utmost priority with speed and comfort attracting our subsequent attention. As a result, this is where most of the volume exists and by placing a cabin here, it enhances buoyancy to produce a more effective self-righting moment. We do this using the best techniques and materials available, akin to our production boats, but also use these opportunities to find new and innovative ways of doing things. You seem to have found a solution that works for YOU, your location, your rivers, and your applications.
You've developed an interesting solution and I find the expression to be a great effort to explore alternative ideas. Other than that, as long as the boat can comfortably carry the designed weights and it is as responsive to steering inputs as you desire, I think that you have a winner. There is a version available for free on archive.org but it looks like an early version that did not include the raft instructions.
However up to now, concerning offshore rowing boat designs, we only made one project of this type, this design being named Brasileirinho (means little Brazilian in Portuguese, and is also a Brazilian folk music catching tune). However this time he managed to cross the pond, rowing from the Canary Islands to the Caribbean.
As soon the boat had been refitted he resumed the trip until reaching Florida, and from there on followed the Intracoastal Waterway, bound for New York City, his final destination.
His boat, which was quite stripped when he started his journey, is getting better equipped at each new stopover, and at the present stage of the voyage "Spirit of Malabo" is resembling the Ferrari of the rowing boats.
Traditional carvel on bent frames is the best match for the character of the boat and will be the most enjoyable to do.
It has a beautiful set of lines with a high transom and tight tuck that will be great fun to build. The building method is traditional clinker on bent frames, centreboard is wood and the boat is open without side decks. The original plans for the Ontario Whitehall were based on one of these designs but proved to be one which did not translate well to woodstrip-epoxy construction. The amount of time we spend on improving ergonomics, minimising potential faults and keeping things simple is therefore, highly important to us. A key reason for placing the main cabin forward is that it helps the boat self-right faster more effectively than any other production boat on the market. Moreover, forward placement protects you from headwinds with a superior aerodynamic profile as well as providing easier control downwind. We are very comfortable with this and happy to quote for the work as the chance to be involved in new and exciting projects is enjoyable for us. Ocean row boats are ruggedly designed and built from marine grade plywood, glass or carbon fiber as well as other composite materials.
Too many of the self-designed boats I see for river fishing simple emulate the hullforms of previous designs. For a boat that must live on a trailer, the option of strip planking sheathed inside and out with glass cloth and epoxy resin is also shown. They are able to withstand the worst weather that the ocean can throw at them and keep their crew safe. It makes you wonder why they didn't just go out and buy a used boat for much less money and get on the water that much sooner.
A straightforward building method and well detailed plans make this one well suited to the beginning boat builder.
Designer Steve Killing came to the rescue and redrew the boat such that it now is lower and sleeker than the originals and sits deeper in the water which is quite appropriate for the recreational use of this boat. All boats in the Great Pacific Race are designed to self-right if they capsize and each boat has undergone a capsize test to ensure that this design feature is operational.
Additional photos, construction and sailing, may be seen on"Skylark's" page in the Custom Boatbuilding section. Generally one cabin is used for storage and the other as the accommodation, where the crew can rest when they are not rowing. It is going to be a bit tiddly but if you sit low enough in the boat it will probably ride out a pretty good blow.
