The Drake R.B. will not only be fast, but it will be beautiful.
DRB Hull Plan & Profile
The plan view shape shows the designed fine entry and fullness aft which allows for the greater speeds in race conditions. The brown strip is a inner keel. The gray gunwales show the wide outer rails which put the oarlocks further outboard.
DRB Hull Perspectives
The bow view shows a very fine entry and the stern view shows the fullness in the aft end which will support rowing at higher speeds.
DRB Sectional View
The wide, laminated gunwales will maximize the oarlock pin-to-pin span allowing for up to 8 1/2' oars. This is important as the fixed-seat rowing class does not allow outriggers. For the sliding seat version, the wide outer rails will allow outrigger brackets to mount directly to the gunwales.
