4.5m Expedition Sailing & Sculling Rowboat
Perfect for fun day sailing, or traveling farther distances while exploring coastal waters, lakes, or rivers. Needing only 6 inches of water with its centerboard and rudder fully retracted, this boat can tuck into quiet, unexplored, and uncrowded spots. It’s beachable, so it’s easy to land the boat and check out the shoreline. The sailing gear is fast and easy to install or remove, even without tools.
Includes solid teak woodwork, bronze fittings, fiberglass hull, bilge drain/plug, maintenance kit, bronze builder’s plaque, pivoting bronze centerboard, oars, kick-up rudder, spruce mast, boom and lug, mainsail, jib, sailing gear, and "How to Row" wafer chip -– ready to row, scull, or sail.

Life jackets provide a +4 bonus on Athletics checks made to avoid drowning, but apply a -2 penalty to Athletics checks to swim quickly, such as for racing or fleeing. Early life vests are filled with bulky cork or, later, plastic foams. They cannot easily be concealed or layered over armor, but provide 1 point of protection for the torso. By TL5, self-inflating flotation vests reduce bulk and can be worn over armor, but provide no armor protection themselves.
