Papa's got a brand new...

... sculling boat! Very generously gifted to me by a friend who had no use for it .

It's a Virus Rowing winged Turbo 11 very versatile, fast and stable sculling boat.

Here it is being rowed down a weir

I need to figure out how to set it up properly for the foot/oar glide and make sure it's trimmed right, but it looks great and should do well in the voes and lochs. It's pretty much unsinkable (barring stupidity) and self emptying.

I might even give it a try out as a sit on top kayak/surf ski by moving the seat back and paddling it instead of rowing it, just depends on how it will effect it's stability.

All I need now is a good day for some sea trials. Am I excited, you bet I am!!!
