Cruiser Plans Completed


by Angus Rowboats 2 Comments


ChristmasinrowboatWe’ve completed plans for the cruiser, and are in the midst of finishing the manual.  For those who can wait no longer, we will be offering Cruiser Plans for sale starting Dec 15th.  While it is unlikely the editing of the manual will be complete then, we will provide the plans and the first two chapters with the complete manual following shortly after.  This way Cruiser enthusiasts can get their projects underway in the New Year with plenty of time to be completed by spring or summer.

With work developing the Cruiser manual/plans coming to an end we will next be developing  plans for our hollow shaft wooden sculling oars – another product we’ve received significant interest in.  For practical purposes standard carbon fiber or fiberglass oars are hard to beat, however, there is nothing that replaces the beauty of traditional wooden sculling oars.  And remarkably, the weight is not much greater with properly made hollow shaft oars.  Another perk with wooden oars is the price tag - not much more than $100. Hollow shaft oars were designed for competitive racing and were commonly used right up until the 1980s.  We are using mainly the same specs for our shafts– a tried and tested formula - while adding a few elements to the blade for aesthetics.

We hope you all have a wonderful Christmas, and a New Year filled with small boating adventures!

Hi Hans, Please try emailing us at team(at)angusadvenutures.com and just replace the (at) with @. If that doesn’t work you can also email Colin directly at colin(at)angusadventures.com, once again replacing the (at) with @.

Thanks!

The last few days of R2AK have included some remarkable finishes. Team Ketch Me if U Can reached Port Townsend on June 19th, finishing 4th overall and completing the race in 7 d 15 h, making them the fastest 20 foot and under boat ever to finish. Plus they now hold the $10,000 buy back cheque, as they’re the first team to reach Ketchikan willing to sell their boat for 10K. Congratulations!

R2AK Stage 2 Day 5

It was a nail biter of a day yesterday, with Team Broderna and Freeburd racing to the finish within shouting distance of each other.  After 700 miles of charging along the tumultuous and rugged west coast, the boats were within 5 minutes of each other.  The last stretch to Ketchikan was calm and it all came down to their pedal drives propelling their weighty multi-hulls to victory.
