Port Townsend Wooden Boat FesitvalWe'll be displaying the Oxford Wherry, the Expedition and another new boat in development at the Port Townsend Wooden Boat Festival.  If you're interested in checking out our boats, or have any questions, come on by and say hello.  I will also be doing a presentation talking about some of our adventures in wooden boats including rowing across the Atlantic Ocean and breaking the speed record around Vancouver Island.  It'll be a great place to be Sept 6-8. And we almost have the Expedition Kits ready.  The wood components have been cut and full kits will be available in a few weeks.

There are many variables including length of oars, location of rowing seat relative to the boat, position of foot brace, height of oarlocks above seat, height of oars, height of seat above bilge, and the spread of the oarlocks. Additionally, there are factors to consider with the oars, such as spoon blade vs flat and weighted vs non weighted handles.
