The 12' Gull Rowing Motorboat is based on the Peterborough Canoe Company's outboard motor/row boat.

The name aptly describes the way the boat perches on the water. This craft is ideal for "messing about in boats"* or for fishing or for the cottage.

It can be used as a row boat or can easily be transformed into a motor boat with a small gas or electric motor.

Since it is small in size, the 12' Gull can be used solo (1 set of oarlocks) or is capable of carrying passengers.

It's handy size makes it great for young people or adults. Since it is light weight, it can be easily car topped. Our plans are full sized and detailed and include patterns for all the integral parts which make it an easy motor/row boat to build.

*Wind In the Willows by Kenneth Graheme

"Believe me my young friend; there is nothing, ... absolutely nothing half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats. In or out of them it doesn't matter ... Nothing seems to really matter, that's the charm of it."                            Spoken by Water Rat 'Ratty'
