The South End Rowing Club maintains a fleet of over 30 boats, including wooden rowboats and Whitehalls (some are over 100 years old), as well as fiberglass racing shells, and coastal row boats. The boats come in a variety of styles: singles, doubles, and two wooden sweep pilot gigs (“barges”) rowed by 6-person crews.
Our boathouse also displays out-of-service wooden shells from years past.
A complete list of South End boats, and who they were named for, is in South End: Sport and Community at the Dock of the Bay, by Bob Barde and Pat Cunneen. The book is available in the club’s office or from Green Apple Books.
