Skiff or Gig?

I'm not sure exactly how to describe this boat which in dimensions is very similar to the local Bursledon gigs, but built by Devon builders B&A Pomeroy in 2002 and a very fine craft she is.

Interior detail showing the builders plate and construction detail. The owner had a really lovely set of hollow shaft wooden blades, light as a feather.


  1. I suspect it is a Cornish skiff, 15ft and rowed very competitively. Skiff rowers lean back practically horizontally.

  2. all wooden fixed seat racing boats are "gigs" this type is a 15ft cornish skiff
