As the Guardian reports, a traditional Scottish fishing skiff design provided the inspiration for the new flatpack coastal rowing boat, which began life as a prototype project for the Scottish Fisheries Museum four years ago.
Since then the St Ayles skiff concept swept like a wave across the UK and beyond - and examples of the DIY kit row boat, which is handmade in Fife, can be found as far afield as Australia.
Many of those international rowers are expected to converge in Scotland this simmer for the coastal rowing world championships off Ullapool.
The Guardian has much more on the story HERE.
