Lapstrake Wooden Row Boat

Estimated price for orientation: 787 $

Category: Other Boats

Condition: New  

14 feet long and 57 inches wide. 

The stringers and structure are Douglas Fir, the keel is white Oak, the hull is Hydrotek (meranti) plywood, and the trim, rails and seats are African Mahogany. The entire boat is encapsulated with three coats of epoxy. The inside has 5 layers of Flagship spar varnish and the outside has three layers high quality Interlux Brightside Polyurethane. All screws that remain in the hull are stainless steel. Oars are Douglas fir with mahogany stripes to match the boat. They have three layers of epoxy and 5 of varnish. The handles are bare wood treated five times with linseed oil. They have leathers stitched to protect them from oar lock scarring. The transom is triple layered and has a removable notch to accept an outboard motor. The strip that runs along the bottom protects the keel, is sacrificial and easily replaced. I will also give you a thumb drive with all the pictures that I could find of the build. This is a virgin hull. It has never been in the water. This boat is a piece of art and is made to be beautiful. It is strong and functional but is not ment to be treated roughly. There is no trailer. 
Reserve set at $3500. Materials alone were over $2500.
