Rowing Around the World

Posted by on Mar 16, 2017 in Ocean Rowing | 0 comments

Many people have been inspired by Jules Verne’s ‘Around The World In 80 Days’, and since then have traveled around the world in many different ways. Erden Eruç traveled the world by boat and by foot and made one of the most incredible adventure stories of our time. He rowed through oceans, walked through deserts, and biked across cities, all while growing a pretty awesome beard. 🙂 On July 10, 2007 Erden left Bodega Bay,...

This lovely Jersey Skiff was built in 2007, but it looks brand new. The maintenance on this boat was absolutely flawless – it doesn’t have so much as a scratch on the keel. With all the functional upgrades – sliding seat, roller furling jib, bilge pump, storage hatches, and a cover; as well as a trailer with spare tire, two pairs of oars and a rudder-mounted electric motor – you’ll be set for adventure.

Recently, a customer wanted to know how fast our smallest boats go with a 2 hp motor. It was a nice sunny day so we decided to take a couple dinghies out for speed testing. We don’t usually think of our boats as motor boats but they work well with a small outboard in maneuverability and speed. Our boats are in fact faster than most competitors because of their fair hull forms, keel design and light weight. Many customers report much...

Sold – 1978 12′ Eddon Gig

Posted by on Jun 10, 2016 in Available Now | 1 comment

Every once in a while we get a boat that is a true “barn find;” a vintage craft which is in far better shape than it has any right to be. Such is the case with this lovely 12′ Eddon Gig. Built in 1978, the boat has spent the last 38 years out on Henderson Bay.
