Norman Fuller took his rowing skiff Ella to this year’s Home Built Boat Rally event at Barton Turf Activity Centre, which gave us an opportunity to meet him and to try out his new boat built to my Ella design. Like the design itself, the Ella is named after my daughter Ella, and turned out to be a cute and simple little skiff, just as the drawings in the free boatbuilding plans package promised – download the plans here. When it was my turn to try the little skiff I was pleased to find she was easy and light under oars – not exactly effortless, but something that even a sedentary desk-jockey like me could expect to be able to row all day.
One thing about the event made me a little nervous, however – rowing enthusiast Chris Partridge was on hand.
In the event, he climbed in, sat down and casually made the little boat fly for a while while we all watched in anticipation. I’ve got some video of Chris rowing the Ella to put up when I get a chance to edit it. Builder Norman recently managed to pick up a 12lb-thrust electric outboard for ?30 at a sale, and so later in the afternoon we had some fun with that. Another exciting development is that the first boat built to the sailing version plans is currently in build in the USA – and Ella and I are very keen to see photos of that one! This boat is designed to be built using the stitch and glue technique – if you haven’t done this before you might be interested in my book Ultrasimple Boat Building: 17 Plywood Boats Anyone Can Build or one of the other books on this topic available from Amazon. Before you commit to a set of plans I would also advocate looking at the displacement figures and other dimensions and considering your needs.

Our Faversham-based friend Alan Thorne can help with boatbuilding projects - constructing to plans in very tidy stitch-and-glue or more traditional techniques. PS – On launch day boat builder, occasional instructor, very good friend of the academy and former Royal Marines sargeant major Roy Gollop donned his bowler hat and did the honours in getting the twelve boats organised and down to the harbour with something approaching military promptness.


Bert van Baar tells me that the prototype of his Hanze Yawl design drew a lot of praise at the Beale Park  Boat Show. Plans for the ply and epoxy boat are for sale for €199, and I gather a plan is being hatched to a kit to build the boat available by the end of the year. The community of folks who have built Mike Storer’s Goat Island Skiff design have created a splendid calendar featuring shots of the boats. The Goat is a 15ft 6in by 5ft plywood skiff with a growing following for both fast sailing under a traditional rig, and for cruising. The second photo shows Mark Harvey sailing a Goat on Barton Water on the Norfolk Broads – we were there and I remember the day clearly. No tengo mucho sitio para hacer contrapeso en proa, sera ir sentado en el banco central pero inclinado hacia proa, este senor lleva mi Walker bay 8s, va a vela pero ese es el sitio en el que se supone que tengo que ponerme de rodillas para que no se levante tanto la proa.
El alargador solucionara tu problema de estabilidad, pero piensa que al ser mas larga la cana no vas a poder virar tanto.
Una solucion a lo que dices seria hacerle un codo en angulo recto desde el extremo con el que la cojo, para empujar el puno fuera de mi alcance. El truco es irse a proa, lugar poco recomendable por ser menos estable, por ser mas estrecho, pues ahi mi barca se cierra en punta. Pero ese deficit lo compensa en parte el motor repartiendo el peso en una zona mas ancha que es todo el espejo de popa.
Es muy probable que en tu motor se pueda regular la posicion respecto a la vertical del motor.
Si, ya lo se, de las cuatro posiciones de la varilla de trimado hay que poner la mas cercana al casco para bajar la proa y la mas lejana al casco para subirla. The fibreglass boat is included on the course to introduce students to this method of boat building. There was talk that it would race on Monday 8th August in the regatta at Beer, which is Justin’s village home, though I see how Justin did from the regatta website.
Jim worked in journalism, marketing and communication before dipping his toe in the water on one of the BBA’s eight-week woodworking skills course, which lead to him joining the 38-week long course. To see a photographic diary of the build click here, and for the Fox 14 website click here.


This is John Krause on a fishing outing in his recently built Julie skiff made from ply and epoxy.

Norman Fuller up in Norwich is clearly having fun building the first Ella skiff rowing boat built to my free boatbuilding plans.

You can’t say that of many 12ft flatties including those based on old-fashioned small American skiffs as this one is, but this boat was drawn with a narrowish beam of 4ft to ensure it would be as good a rower as it could be. Like most of the journalist tribe Chris is usually pretty clear in his opinions, and is known to be generally unenthusiastic about flatties, so naturally I was a little nervous – what might the author of Rowing for Pleasure have to say to readers and other HBBRers about the Ella design?

She was made by three Boat Building Academy students, Gary Thompson, Yoann Henric and Nick Lawther (see second photo).
A commercial pilot, who built his Goat in New Hampshire, he has been cruising it offshore (on good weather reports) and camping on the rocky shores. The boat was built by Mark’s father Richard, three or four years ago, and has a carbon mast. It was designed for short- to medium-length coastal regatta rowing races, and has a solid fibreglass layup in chopped strand matt, built in buoyancy tanks, a modern pin gate oarlock and a fixed seat rowing set-up. He has now set-up a business in Devon called Fox 14, which is making and selling the boats. He adapted the 15ft-something rowing skiff’s transom slightly for use with an electric outboard, but it still looks pretty well, don’t you think? It sounds marvellous if slightly implausible, but  a bowler-hatted Mr Gollop is probably not someone to argue with!
