By Darryl J. Strickler

Sculling addict Darryl Strickler will tell you all about the history, design, and especially the use of single rowing sculls (the long, narrow boats with the outrigged oars). He covers builders in the UK, Europe, Australia, Canada, and the US. Canada builders include Kaschper, Levator, and Hudson, and the appendix includes lines drawings of a Kaschper shell. European builders include Stampfli, Pirsch, Empacher and others. For the US, Pocock from the Seattle area, Garafalo of Worcester, MA, Helmut Shoenbrod of Kennebunkport, ME, and even Graeme King of Putney, VT. It's also about the boats from the rower/owner perspective. And, there's an in-depth section on the special oars which propel these boats, including Ciolli, Croker, Sargent & Burton, Piantedosi, Sims of Twickenham, Aylings, Shaw & Tenney, and more. Many many photos, current and historical.
