backbone

The rowing skiff was commissioned by Saltash Rowing Club.

The lines were taken from No22, which is considered to be one of the more competitive racing skiffs. To compete, the boats have to be traditionally built, 15`or under in length and 4`8`` or over in the beam. Otherwise, creativity is encouraged in the hull design. Re-creating a curious bulge in the garboard aft was the main challenge of this build.

The skiff is built from sitka spruce on oak and copper and bronze fastenings were used throughout.

She was launched in May 2011 and immediately raced twice, coming in a respectable 3rd on both occasions.
