Unless built in two sections, it's also a bit of a problem for many
For a somewhat smaller version, there's the Special Olympics Bateau:
25' 6" x 4' 10"
Capacity 4 adults
6 1/2' oars
7 sheets 1/2" ply, though could be built much lighter
It's _really_ hard to find a pic of one of those.
Bruce? did you scan that page from the Common Sense Design Catalog? I
can't find any of it in your Flikr or Webshots stuff.
The basic idea is in at least four sizes: Yellow Leaf, 15'; the pedal
boat, Madeline, 19'; Bateau, 25'; Naval Jelly, 31'.
