It was great to see that Roeboats Ninigret that I built last year is featured in Woodenboat Magazine’s Small Boats 2011.



Here are a few pertinent quotes:

“Ninigret’s hull lines show a boat that is long, lean and light everything that an efficient powerboat should be.”

“Atkin & Company designed over 800 boats, many of them motorboats and many design themes similar to Ninigret were returned to and refined again and again over the course of many years. Perhaps there can be no greater recommendation for this design than to point out that she is the boat John Atkin chose for his own use in his retirement. He and his wife, Pat, enjoyed countless picnics and cruises in Ninigret, in Long Island Sound.”

“… great looking boats that do their jobs really well.”

Roeboats’ Ninigret was chosen as Wooden Boat Magazine’s Boat of the week see here. September 2009
