Fife: Bordner, wiring together


Dear Glen-L

After finishing my son's Squirt, I was looking for a reason to build another boat, when my mother mentioned she had always wanted her own rowboat. So I quickly went to your website and started looking. There I found... my next project, "The Fife"... A classic looking 12' long rowboat that would fit the bill perfectly.

The goal was to have it ready for her 80th birthday, (yes 80th). And you can see from the pictures it was finished in time and what a hit it was. She loves the boat and the ease with which it rows. It glides over the water perfectly and has that timeless look of the boats she rowed as a child on the Puget Sound here in Washington. She's taken grandchildren, friends and my dad for rides. This boat has brought her a lot of joy.
