The Scilly Gig is named after a type of very fast rowboats that originated in the Scilly Islands, UK and despite what the name sounds like, is designed for the serious oarsman. She is fast: a top speed of 4 mph can be achieved at 25 strokes per minute and at a quieter pace, she will cover more than 3 miles per hour. The two different weights refer to a standard and a light version. The light version uses 4mm marine ply.
No compromise as been made to rowing performance for a single crew but if needed, she can carry a passenger and gear without any problem: the pounds per inch immersion is 115lbs. A second rowing position is provided by the forward seat. Seats can be rearranged to suit.
