Canadian company RowersWorld are selling an interesting rowing catamaran, the TomCat, although it may be the Skimmer under another name, perhaps.
It is 18ft 6in long and each hull is only 9in wide so it should be fairly fast, and the overall beam is 3ft 3in so its should be extremely stable. It splits into three bits without tools, enabling the boat to be carried on a roof rack without difficulty.
The sensation of rowing over the water is said to be "exciting and dramatic" but also bum-dampening I imagine. And it might not be very manoeuvrable. It is on sale already, down from $4300 to $3700 (plus tax). Has anybody tried one? What's it like on the water?
For comparison, see the Virus Kataram and the prototype Rocat.
