Plans/Manual for Sailing RowCruiser Now Available


by Colin Angus


RowCruiser with supplemental sailing rig.We’d hoped to have the plans available for the sailing RowCruiser months ago, but it’s been a long process.  The sailing rig is very detail oriented, and the manual required countless diagrams and corresponding text to clarify the process. Needless to say, we’re excited to finally have it all finished so others can start building their own.

The sailing RowCruiser is comprised of two plans sets – one for main central hull, and the other for the amas, akas, foils and sailing rig.  The two plans sets are laser printed on 180 sq/ft of paper.  That’s the equivalent area of an average bedroom!  Every shape that boat is comprised of is easily transcribed from paper to wood, resulting in an easy and accurate way to replicate the vessel.  Each of the two manuals is about 70 pages and provides diagrams and photos .

The plans for the sailing components and amas can also be adapted for other boats, such as large canoes, although a bit of customization will be required to use on other vessels. To learn more about our Sailing RowCruiser, please click here.

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.
