3D Challenge #039 - Rowing Boat

Note: Please read the guidelines for participating in the challenge. The purpose of the challenge is to have fun and bring SketchUp users together and help each other learn and get better at using our favorite 3d modeling program. We will remove comments that are objectionable or offensive.

This week's challenge:

Rowing Boat

The original rowing boat dates back many, many years and was typically made of wood. Now, there are many different styles and materials used when constructing a row boat. Many are still made using wood and the original style of boat, but can also be made from carbon fiber and other synthetic materials. They can be long and narrow for racing, or short and wide for a traditional feel. No matter the style or type, your model should be a row boat. No motors or any other type of engine. It may be as detailed and intricate as you like.

Good Luck and have fun!

  1. General notes:

    From this challenge and in the future, there will no obligation for a blog entry anymore. It is still allowed to post a link to your model or additional images, but it is not required anymore to submit a model to the challenges. The 3D Warehouse tag is still required though and should be added when uploading a model to the Warehouse.

    You can use the hyperlink code creater on the frontpage of the blog to create the code for a hyperlink in your message. Copy this code and paste it in the comment box on the place where your want the hyperlink to be.

    Challenge suggestions are welcome to be placed on the blog. Items will be noted and compiled on the moderator’s list. At that point, the initial comment for the suggestion may be deleted so as to maintain a streamline challenge thread for use of posting entries for the challenge and comments to models. Challenge suggestions have always been welcomed and taken under consideration.

    Good luck with the challenge...
