This is a six-day class ending Saturday.

The Echo Bay Dory Skiff Rower is a light, fast, very seaworthy small rowboat that can be built by the first time boat builder. Designed to be cartoppable, easy to load in a pick-up truck, the Echo Bay is lightweight for its size, tipping the scales at only 80 lbs when built carefully from CNC’d plywood. This results in a skiff that rows nimbly, and is exceptionally easy to move around, load, and launch. The Echo can take up to 3 adults or a total of 484 lbs of people plus gear at which point the transom will be just touching the water. With her graceful sheer and classic proportions, the Echo Bay is as beautiful as she is seaworthy. Her safety and versatility as a sail and row trainer has made the Echo Bay a popular choice for local camps, building with kids, and family boatbuilding groups.
