A Cinderella canoe adapted for rowing

Cinderella, adapted for rowing by Martin Wellby

I can’t claim this is about any kind of traditional boat, but I think I can safely say that rowing is a traditional activity, that more people should do it and that this post is about a neat and inexpensive way of equipping yourself to do it. These photos show a very sweetly made canoe built to my Cinderella design that has been adapted in a couple of useful ways.

Designers don’t often like the changes people make to their designs, but in this case I do like the bouyancy tanks, and most of all I think the conversion for rowing is just superb. My guess is that this little boat will go like a rocket for its length. Well done to Martin Wellby for some excellent work, and many thanks for his permission to publish these photos!
