The Tyee boat, as it is known in Campbell River BC, Canada, was
developed from a lapstrake design wooden boat that has been built on the
west coast of Ireland for centuries.
Our oars are available in 6 foot to 8'6" lengths. Other lengths available through special order. Classic clinker built Tyee wooden row boats are 14' 3" long and have one or two rowing stations. These custom wooden boats are designed to allow one rower and two fishers to troll for large tyee / king
salmon. The hull provides stability in the sea swells but the Tyee is also a welcome sport boat on fresh water lakes in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, Nebraska, Minnesota, Alaska and wherever the sport of fishing is enjoyed.
These round bilge lapstrake boats have a deep keel and curved up hull at the stern. They weigh in at only 170 to 200 pounds depending on wood selection -a design that works wonderfully in sea swells and permits superb control by the rower, especially with a large Salmon, Northern Pike or Muskee hooked on your line.
