Linnet

The LINNET is a seaworthy rowing boat that has been specifically designed for sea use. Accordingly it does not have outriggers or a sliding seat while a small daggerboard is fitted to help prevent being blown sideways by the wind. A good load carrier, LINNET can be rowed by 1-3 people.

They have been built all over the world and have made some long coastal trips with the crew camping on board at night. Perhaps the most ambitious trip was a cruise down the River Shannon (the longest river in the British Isles) by a BEE and LINNET with the crew sleeping on board at night.
