VERSATILITY: The Adirondack Series Guideboat
15 can be rowed as a fixed seat or sliding seat single. There is also
plenty of room for a passenger and recreational gear while sculling or rowing. In fact, the Guideboat
15 can carry a multitude of gear and people very efficiently in calm or rough
SEAWORTHY: Unlike racing shells the
Guideboat 15 will row right through motorboat wakes, wind chop and small surf.
(Do not attempt sea conditions beyond your capability.) This hull is among the
driest of all rowboats.
Guideboat 15 has one of the
two fastest traditional Guideboat hull designs while also retaining a high degree of
stability in the water. It is an excellent training boat, fishing boat, family boat or
cruising boat because of its stability. As is the case with all guideboats
the more weight that is carried the more stable they become due to their
superior designed "V" shaped hull. It tracks beautifully without a fin and only draws a few inches of water
with people and gear aboard.
FITNESS: If exercise is important to you, the
Guideboat 15 is your boat. It provides excellent cross training for cyclists and
joggers as well as all other sports. In
fact, you might abandon your other sport! The Guideboat 15 allows total aerobic
(low-impact) exercise in a peaceful environment. No other rowing boat or
rowing shell will do what this hull will do for fitness.
PERFORMANCE: This Guideboat
design has covered the 65 mile round trip Lake George to Ticonderoga distance in
record time consistently over the last six years. It has made the 65 mile Ticonderoga run
in less than 12 hours, without a sliding seat unit! This hull will out row
and out distance most open water shells in rough or calm water. The Guideboat 15 will row all day at 5 mph easily, 6 to 7 mph with moderate
exertion 8 to 10 mph at race pace by seasoned scullers.
