Wooden Ships Comments on this 12′ Clinker Rowing Boat
Clinker rowing dinghy that has been substantially built, possibly a barge boat or similar but almost certainly built as a working boat.
Generous beam making her very stable.
This is a project that would suit an enthusiastic amateur for a winter project. There are some areas of soft in the planking around the hood ends and some soft in the stem. We have not be able to ascertain the full extent of the repairs required so any buyer will need to inspect the boat in detail themselves to understand exactly what is required to make her seaworthy.
Clinker planked hull, copper rivet fastened to steam bent timbers.
Heavy mahogany gunwhale all round.
Two thwarts with heavy hanging knees.
Solid sole boards.
