For anyone who has ever looked with envy at scullers and the ease with which they glide to and fro in their sliding seats comes a new boat that combines the seaworthiness of a Whitehall tender with the ergonomics of a sculling boat. The 11-foot 6-inch Westcoast, built by Whitehall Rowing & Sail in Victoria, British Columbia, reportedly tracks true on its full-length keel and can also carry passengers, although the sculling seat is also removable and a thwart easily installed.
