The Oarsome 15'2" skiff has been designed for the Oarsome Chance Foundation as a simple stitch and tape ply skiff. Oarsome Chance focuses on young people aged from 9 -19 years old who are disengaged from mainstream education and are at risk of exclusion and suffering disadvantage and this skiff was drawn up to give them a project that does not take too long to build and which gives them experience with a number of different practical skills.

The skiff can be made as a simple open stitch and tape boat or be fitted with side floatation tanks with moveable seats or with a centreboard and simple sprit rig. The drawings also include building jig and construction details so that she can be made ply plank over frame.

The standard layout has 2 rowers plus a cox and if required a seat up forward for a fourth person.

The photos below show the first skiff built at Oarsome Chance who will also be offering her in kit form to the public.
