18' Windrush Rowing Skiff
Plans
$168 England & EU
$143 USA/Elsewhere 

This skiff has been drawn up for a client who specifically wanted to develop a design optimised for the “front rower” rowing system (www.frontrower.com) which allows the rower to face forward. For those who do not want to use this system we have included details for the skiff to be fitted out with conventional fixed seat and outriggers—she could aslo take a sliding seat if required.

Construction is simple stitch and tape using 4 planks per side but we also include the jig and mould details so that she may be built using clinker ply construction.

Construction uses 6 sheets of 4mm plywood.

LOA 18’ (5.49m); Hull beam 2’9” (0.85m). Approx. wht. in 4mm ply 66lbs (30kg).

Below is a modified example of the Windrush by Anthony Walker - this version (the plank shapes for this version are also given in the standard plans) has a little more beam and more hull depth - this is to help make her into a multi-role boat with outriggers, sail rig etc.
