The Skiff Factory built Kits 176 & 185 Bella and Bonnie for Langstone Adventure Rowing. LAR use them for Adventure Rowing, coastal rowing training and promotion – seen here in Langstone Harbour with Laura Jane, a Cornish Pilot Gig. Bella shown here exploring Venice in 2017 on a visit to the Vogalonga.
The Boats have also been in the 2017 Hamble river Raid – Bella winning the ‘Concourse de Elegance’. Currently earmarked for work with HBC on an Active Ageing project to help 55+ years old get active again.
We also use them for testing and experimenting the Skiffs’ performance for Risk Assessments. See here flooded with air bags to assess the impact of additional buoyancy. The results are leading to a new Mark 4 design with built-in buoyancy.
