Printed plans shipped and PDF plans emailed from Selway Fisher


There are some rowing races that take place at West Kerry in Eire using 27' rowing gigs. The races take place in the open sea, in harbours and estuaries where there is often a severe chop. Each gig takes a crew of 4 with an additional member acting as cox. The hull has a fine entry, low waterline beam with well flaired topsides giving a good range of stability and a pretty wineglass transom. Construction is for strip planking over computer generated mould shapes. LOD 27' (8.24m); Beam 5'6" (1.68m).
