This expedition-designed rowing scull is seaworthy, fast and can carry a month’s provisions. The watertight storage space is accessed through extra-large hatches and the roomy cockpit is adequate for rowers of all sizes. Although seaworthiness and load carrying are paramount with this design, these attributes were included without sacrificing performance. Optimal performance is achieved through a long waterline length, plumb bow and stern (increasing waterline length), minimal wetted area (no keel, rudder or skeg), hull shaped for tracking, light weight, modest rocker (too much rocker saps speed by decreasing the waterline length and makes the boat vulnerable to broaching in large following seas) and minimal windage.
The Expedition Kit includes the marine plywood parts, sheer clamps, fibreglass, epoxy resin, and all other components necessary for building the boat. It also comes with a manual and standard plans. The sliding seat system is sold separately.
