About to start work on the plans for this one. I have wanted a rowing boat for a while and really don't want a toothpick (rowing shell). I love the lines of the old Wherries and have been playing with the design for quite some time. It just kept evolving and getting closer to a Wherry. Of course as time has gone on I have improved my skills and I am able to know what to expect and work it all out.
Tricky part was getting the Wine Glass transom and being able to skin it and keep the skin on the frames so to maintain the shape. You can't have a concave shape or the skin will just stretch over it. 'I think' I have a shape that will give me the look and and the skin will take the shape I want. Only one way to know for sure.
Probably be a month or so before I start building but I am very interested in this project. Still have to work out a lot of details on this. Got to have good footrests. May need to make a set of outriggers to get a little extra width. Or course I need to make a couple of sets of oars. Thats something I have never done. But of course all that just makes it more appealing!
