My son and I built this rowing skiff a few years ago. It is a design by Ken Swan, but we made a few changes to dress it up. It is very straight forward to construct if you follow his plans. The changes we made added time to the project, but was well worth it. We added a grate style seat up front, a C-shaped seat in the stern, and a lot of other little details. The bright work is Mahogany ,the framing is also Mahogany and some White Oak. The sides and bottom are Marine Grade Douglas Fir. It is 13’6” nose to stern. and 4’4” wide. It rows quite easily, but will take a 5hp motor as well.
The last photo shows my sons changing drivers…..in mid stream.
