Beam At Waterline
The M229 double is an uncompromising hull for light crews and is a tribute to minimum drag. It has Jeff Sykes trademark semi-circular cross-section of the hull, but also very fine proportions. While it is the most narrow hull at the waterline of all hulls on the market, the seating area is open enough to suit the hips of most rowers. While designed for 132lb rowers, crews up to 155lbs have had remarkable success in this hull. This mould has twice won the World Championships in the LW2X category.
