Welcome! Need support, you got it. Or share you ideas and experiences.
This 'foto' brings out something we have yet to touch on here at the SmallBoatForum: Rowboats! Anybody got a neat rowing boat they might tell us about? Got a rowing Dory, a rowing Whithall, a rowing Wherry, an Adirondack Guideboat? How about a fine Flat Bottom Skiff for that daily pull on the blades...?
Please send me the details on the Whithall 17 rowing boat.
Is it with a fixed seat or a sliding seat?
Go to Google.com search engine with your browser. Put in "whitehall 17" Up will pop 2 versions of a rowing Whitehall--1 with a fixed seat and 1 with a sliding seat.
Also, see if you can track down the article in WoodenBoat magazine (maybe in your library?) #126—Sept. Oct. 1995—good article by Robert W. Stephens (boatbuilder, author and boat designer). He gives some insights on a Whitehall as a rowing craft that is well worth the read…
Hope this helps!
