Beach Pea

Most boats produced as tenders today row so poorly that it is little wonder that their owners often turn to an outboard motor for help. But if you are willing to forego the noise, expense and pollution of a motor, you may find that a peapod is the ultimate yacht tender. These are great little boats, seaworthy, stable, and easily rowed. Here is a pod that is a bit smaller than most, but she will still carry a big load and bring you through some lumpy water with confidence. Beach Pea uses modern glued lapstrake plywood construction, so she is lighter and easier to build than a traditionally built boat. In addition, you won’t have to worry about her seams opening if your pod has been out of the water for a while. The clean interior will be easier to maintain, and a coat of paint will last longer on the stable plywood surface. See our web site for more information about this design.
