I'm looking to build a nice rowing skiff. Not a flat out rowing shell, but something that I can use both for rec. rowing and to take the wife out in for a nice evening. I want something that weighs in around 70 lbs so I can cartop it, is reasonable performer, and employs a simple build method (no steam bending ribs :-).
The CLC Annapolis Wherry fits my idea, but the kit is a little over my budget. The Redmond Whisp would also seem to fit my criteria. Does anyone have a set of plans for the Whisp? Its built using the glue lapstrake method of Tom Hill. I built one of Tom's small canoe's using that method about 8 years ago and its a simple method. I figure I could build the Whisp for half the price of the CLC wherry. Any other design suggestions welcomed,
