RowCruiser - The Ultimate Sailing Canoe
We've adapted our canoe-shaped rowboat into a performance sailing vessel. This is a very versatile boat that includes a full length sleeping chamber, seven sealed compartments (including the amas) for seaworthiness, and a sliding seat rowing system. The main hull can simply be rowed on it's own as a capable human-powered craft, or the amas and sails affixed for exciting performance. The craft is constructed from straightforward stitch and glue construction and plans and kits are at www.angusrowboats.com

Oxford Wherry 16
Plans and kits for this boat are available at www.angusrowboats.com. It is a 16' rowing vessel fusing elements from traditional wherries and Whitehalls with modern design. The result is a very lightweight (53 lbs), versatile and fast boat. For those that include functionality in the "elegant" equation, this boat is as elegant as they get.

rowboat stability and capsize demonstration
Expedition model rowing boat (scull) being tested for stability. Boat is also capsized and re-righted to demonstrate ease of recovery. Not one cup of water remains in the cockpit after being completely inverted. Recovery from capsize takes approximately 20 seconds, although capsizing is extremely unlikely. More information on the Expedition Model Scull can be found at www.angusrowboats.com

Testing Autonomous Boat with New Drive System
We've now completed many of electronics systems for the autonomous solar boat and have installed them in the prototype for further testing. We have radically redesigned the overall drive system, and have opted to use an inboard motor rather than an external pod design. We have brought on a new sponsor, UK FlowTechnik, who has provided us with a German-made top quality magnetic coupler. This will allow the torque from the motor to be conveyed through the boat hull to the propeller without requiring a hole in the boat, improving efficiency, longevity and ensuring the boat is completely watertight.
