Carl Kramer gives Thumbs up for Cruiser Rowboat!


by Angus Rowboats 2 Comments

We are pleased to announce that Karl Kramer, publisher of Wooden Boat Magazine has chosen our Cruiser Rowboat as his boat of the week. In the words of Carl, "I love the concept".

It will still be a while yet before we have plans ready for the Cruiser. This July, we will be testing it on a non-stop three day run to see what distance two people are capable of propelling it. If our speed is sufficient, we may attempt to break the speed record around Great Britain.

Here’s direct link to my “Hei Matau” kayak build. (original design by Ross Miller of Connecticut, I made cockpit modifications.) Am putting removable sliding seat and rigger together now for change of pace from paddling when desired. The hull shape tracks very well without fin, keel, or rudder.

Congrats on the featured spot by Wooden Boat Magazine. Question, are the hollow-shaft oar plans anywhere on the horizon? Have built coopered columns before and capable of the project on my own, but if I thought your plans were forthcoming I’d buy to harvest dimensions from them. Enjoy seeing your boats, well done. (see my blog, under “A Building Lifestyle” to see a skin kayak I built.
