[OT16] An able open rowing skiff with an auxiliary sail.
$65.00 – $90.00
The requirements for the Otter 16 were simple: an able open rowing skiff with auxiliary sail. This had to be a rowboat first. A length around 16′, lets us use long oars and is about ideal for a serious rowboat, smaller skiffs do not have sufficient inertia to go through a chop. This size also provides sufficient seaworthiness and ample capacity for camping cruising or fishing. The layout can be used for single or double rowing. The sail is an auxiliary sail: small are and spars that can be stowed inside while rowing; the small daggerboard and rudder do not affect rowing performance.
