    Was wondering if anyone has any information on any Traditional Thames river rowing skiffs, between 10-14 feet. Any line plans or ideas of where I could purchase line plans/construction plans. And any traditional woods used in construction of these boats.

    Thanks Matt

    I'd be very surprised if any of the Thames rowing clubs couldn't help you.

    The traditional Thames Skiffs are normally much longer over 18ft for a pair, smaller hire skiffs are about 16 ft. Selway fisher does plans for similar boats.
