Nice looking boat.

More pictures please, my guess is 3.5m should go ok with a silver century.

I think with a decent Keel it would drift well on Scottish Lochs
much better than some boats I use
Very nice

Three set of rollicks, it must be close to 16 ft. plus? Lovely boat well proportioned; few more pics would be good, plus its vital statistics

I will update statistics later, boat length 4.8m, width 1.6m
First feeling, not too much power, but OK for for nice Sunday cruising

Thanks!

On a boat trip at cottage. Max speed 10-11km/h (5 hp silver seagull).
This boat is very stable. I tried a couple of weeks ago our old glassfibre (roving) boat, little bit smaller than this wooden boat, and I was surprised how unstable it was compared to the new boat.
I think price of the boat (2100 eur) was not bad for handmade wooden boat.
