17' Thames Rowing Skiff

Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


I have often been asked to stretch the basic Thames 12 design—using the same beam—to a skiff capable of having 2 rowing positions—we now have this in the 17’ Thames Skiff which has the same attractive 5 planks per side hull shape and using the same simple stitch and tape method of construction.

The plans show both a double and single rowing position so that she can be fitted out either way. She uses 5 to 6 sheets of 4,5 or 6mm ply—if required she could take a small sail rig or use a small electric outboard.
