Sculling Boat Makes

Post by MT Bro » Tue, 22 Oct 2002 03:21:51


I am looking into buying a sculling boat and have heard about a make
of boat that is made in China (or somewhere near China) and is a
distinctive Red colour and sells for around 800. Does anyone what the
make is called and how I can get information about them in the UK?
Also, does anyone have any experience of using these boats, how do
they handle and do they last long?

I've seen some of them in Holland, at the Vechtrace. They were yellow, but I
think this depends on your preferences. The name was something like "Lian*"
or something like this with L.

For 800, you can't expect a boat that accompanies you all of your life, and
it certainly won't. Handling is one thing... Maybe you better ask for
precision and adjustment possibilities. Most cheap boats tend to be
impossible to set up precisely. And therefore the handling suffers.

You can kindly ask Rutger Spek of Salland RV in Holland, he has one.

Or you ask a certain Mr. Douglas if he can paint a boat red for you. Maybe
red glowing wood also suits your preferences?

Go to agree with Henning. You pay your money and takes you chances. 800 for
a new boat sounds awfully cheap. Chances are it will go squishy after a
couple of seasons.

Possibly the LJ boats marketed in the UK by RBTL?
http://www.rbtl.co.uk/index2.htm

Somewhere in the back of my mind I have a feeling that LJ stands for Lian Jin,
but I can't find it spelled out anywhere on the web-page.

You can post there if you're trying to buy as well as if you're selling.

However the single comes in at 1995 not eight hundred notes!

These are available from Oarsport (Matchless?) and there are 3 at our club.
Not sure about the 800 bit, but they're certainly similar in price to
Burgashells and certainly seem a better boat than those. Wing riggers look a
bit agricultural but the hulls look OK. There's also a rather *** red
and white Stampfli lookalike version. Wonder if they can do one in that
sticky backed plastic with wood veneer pattern also?

There is an adverti***t for Chinese boats in Rowing magazine.  Try
www.rowingcenter.com
But prices are a bit more than 600.

Is Rowing magazine still available?  I thought it had ceased publication?
If it's still available, what is the contact address?
