Used by several generations of cottagers for transportation around Stoney Lake, this double ended rowing skiff became known as a regatta winner. Thought to have been built by the Brown Boat Company, Lakefield, Ontario, the style is typical of the elegant cedar strip double ended skiffs built by several Peterborough area builders. Steve Killing has re-faired the hull and added slightly more volume to the ends to make rowing at moderate and high speeds more efficient. With two rowing positions, it is a versatile craft to enjoy alone or with your favourite partner out for a little fishing or an evening of conversation.
