Annapolis Wherry

A John Harris deisgn, built by Elijah Davis

    The Annapolis Wherry combines the appearance of a classic lapstrake rowboat with the performance of a lightweight rec shell. This car top-able pulling boat is stable enough to stand in but can sprint about 6 knots. It's comfortable in choppy water, and great for low impact exercise. I built this wherry for a college rower who frequently uses an erg machine at the gym and now can be on the water. Brass chafe guards match functional cleats. A glued up a sapele veneer on the transom compliments the gunwales and quarter knees.
