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!
