Furniture wood boat bookshelf rowing boat Bosun's Gig
♥ This rowing boat is modelled on a dinghy for larger sailing boats. It can be used decoratively as a shelf for books and other utensils and is the ideal gift for maritime enthusiasts. Gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside. Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, needed minimum crew, and was quick to dispatch. When stowed, it nested in the long boat or pilot boat secured in the center of the main deck. Our lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gigs are not seaworthy, but they most certainly look like it! Clinker build, they add flair and atmosphere to any room, and display shelves turn them into fun cabinets and bookcases.
This boat can only be used as a shelf and is not suitable for water.
