Default Is there a boating group on usenet?

Just wondering. Thanks! I like small boats for use with oars and small outboards.

Although boating discussion on this group has thinned out for various
reasons, most of us have, or had, boating experience, and most owners
of larger boats also own a small boat or two. What would you like to
know?

Thanks. I have an 11' Boston Whaler and a small outboard and while it is rowable, it is not really a rowboat. I'm looking for something decent looking a little longer maybe 14 to 16 feet that I can row around inshore where I like to fish(rowing is quieter than motor) but attach a motor to get to those fishing spots. I have found it difficult to find a decent small boat. I don't like aluminum. A nice fiberglass dory would be ok, but I can't find any.

You might want to look at canoes. Some have square backs. Many can be fitted
with motor brackets and outriggers.

I grew up puttering around in wooden row boats in the 12 to 14 ft
range. You could also put an ouboard on them, typically in the 3 to 5
hp range. Most boats like that nowadays are home built since the
market is relatively small and tooling costs for commercial
manufacturing are high.

If your're handy with tools, like building things, and have room to
work, there are kits and plans available. Here's one example:

And another:

And a lot mo

Searching Google for 15 ft rowing skiffs brings up quite a few hits:

Something like this might be what you are looking for. They are pretty
stable and will take a pretty good sized outboard but get around OK
with a kicker.
