Rowing a sliding seat sculling boat offers excellent cardiovascular conditioning plus double the calorie burn of jogging or tennis without risk of tendon or joint damage. The Whitehall Spirit is ideal for rowing on lakes, rivers or oceans. The slide seat units can be quickly and easily removed allowing traditional bench seats to be installed converting it to a traditional rowboat that carries five people. Sailing models are available that offer traditional rowing, slide seat sculling or sailing all in one attractive package.
