This is the underbody of Pete's boat. It is the standard Argie 15 underbody, shaped for efficient sailing and rowing.

Pete's Argie 15 on its trailer, light enough to be trailed by a compact vehicle. He reinforced the transom and trimmed the top, to set the motor at the correct level. He also added a steering console with engine controls.

Pete at the wheel of his Argie 15 at speed. He reports that it can do close to 40km/hr (25mph). Not bad for a rowboat.
