There are innumerable ways to row boats, but mathematical physicist John Barrow (University of Cambridge) has made a splash by optimizing the ways to arrange the port and starboard rowers in racing boats. The conventional rig, in which the port and starboard rowers alternate, results in energy-wasting, side-to-side wiggle (oscillating, non-zero transverse moment) as the rowers move up and down the hull on every stroke.Barrow showed that the problem of finding zero-moment rigs is related to a special case of the subset sum problem.
A number of moulded Tidal Fly clinker-effect plastic rowing boats are on sale at ?400 a pop in the South-East of England. I don’t know who made them, or whether they were designed or moulded from an existing boat, but the boats used by fly fishermen on our local reservoir are coming up for sale at ?400 a pop.
Bewl is also selling the outboard motors the boats have been used with also, but I have no details.
I'm not a fan of plastic but the boat looks quite nicely proportioned – how long is it? I think I'm the only rower on our bay too, On flat winter mornings I like to do do a 6 or 7 mile course. I'd love to know what you finally settle on, and why… What are the choices, do you think? A quite superb design, one of probably only two world class cruiser-racer dinghies (the other being the Wayfarer), and very much enjoyed and appreciated by some of us. I would go along with Pete Culler's advice about not trying to turn a good rowing boat into a mediocre sailboat. It looks as if this boat was built with more stability than usual to allow for a fly fisherman to cast while being rowed around by a partner.

It would be difficult and even unhelpful to add a centreboard slot to these boats, but I see no harm in adding a small leeboard. I read Pete Culler some time ago and don't recall whether Pete Culler made your point, though I do remember Bolger did so.

Boats in which the rowers have two oars and there are one, two, four and sometimes eight rowers; a sculling boat is rarely guided by a coxswain. Sculling boat for two rowers; like the single scull, it is rudderless and is steered by applying unequal force against the oars. He's discovered arrangements in four- and eight-person rowers whereby the rowing forces are wiggle free.

That’s not something you often get with a round-bottomed boat, and I think some will find it an especially helpful design feature. In that role, with one fisherman and one outboard they make an impressive sight with their bows rather light and often well out of the water.
The kind that hangs on a line running to the inside boat somewhere could well be just the job. Try scrolling down, clicking on the 'older posts' button at the bottom of this page - or try the search gadget! You could make one of those look really swish, and fit it with a sprit rig for downwind work too. It is essential to have a boat that can be re-entered in open water but I haven't settled on a model yet. What I'd like is an elderly plastic one – and not quite for buttons, for I know what that would get me! I agree with Chris Partridge, I like their bones and here, in and out of the water all the time, they'd be less prone todamage than wood. Not very glam, but just the cheap boat for a middle-aged dinghy sailor with a wife and family and a big lake on his doorstep where sailing is so much the in thing!

    Appear just the right selection design problem, you will construct a self-propelling boat.
