  • A.S.C.
  • Bursledon Gig
  • Celtic Longboat
  • Cornish Pilot Gig
  • Dinghy
  • Dragonboat
  • Felixstowe Clayton Skiff
  • Gravesend Clayton Skiff
  • Hawaiian Outrigger
  • Home Counties Gig
  • King Alfred
  • Lifeboat
  • Montagu Whaler
  • Naval Cutter
  • Norfolk Mussel Boat
  • Pembrokeshire Longboat
  • River Teign Seine Boat
  • Salter Skiff
  • Scarborough Gig
  • Shackleton Ship's Boat
  • Ship's Lifeboat
  • Skiff
  • Sloop (8 oared)
  • Teifi Skiff
  • Thames Double Skiff
  • Thames Racing Skiff
  • Thames Rosalind Skiff
  • Thames Waterman Cutter
  • Whaler
  • Whitby Gig
  • Working Naomh├│g (4hd)
The "Shackleton Ship's Boat" caught my eye - its a replica of the boat the James Caird that Shackleton managed that amazing voyage across the Antarctic Sea that led to the rescue of him and all his men.
