This sweet little skiff was built by the Rice Lake Boat Works during the transition from muscle power to the outboard. Sure to be a very useful boat at the cottage for fishing, rowing or just knocking about. It is one of the most stable boats we offer and will row well with up to three adults on board or a whole fleet of youngsters. A small outboard or electric motor will efficiently propel the boat for trolling, bird watching or just getting home a little faster. The lines were re-faired by Steve Killing keeping the character of the sheer, body sections and distinctive transom stern.
Although the plans should be sufficient for a confident builder, please be aware we don't supply our own instructional materials. If you need additional info, we recommend "Woodstrip Rowing Craft" by Susan Van Leuven for more on how to construct small boats (copies aren't available through Bear Mountain, but can be ordered from several online booksellers).
Is this the right boat for you?
