LEMON BAY DOLL ROWBOAT
Two-Doll Wood Rowboat with Hand-Carved Oars
Handcrafted for 18-inch dolls such as American Girl®
“Quick! Everybody push hard to the left,” Samantha yelled. After one more push they were out of the narrow passage, heading into the wide, black lake. They had no time to catch their breath and began to row again. They hunched over the oars, trying to keep the rain out of their eyes. They rowed as hard as they could, on and on, through the stormy darkness, across the lake that seemed as huge and endless as the ocean. “Lights!” Samantha shouted at last. “I see lights! It’s Piney Point!”
~From Samantha Saves the Day by Vaerie Tripp, Pleasant Company Publications, 1998.
Who can forget this exciting moment in Samantha Parkington’s story! We love recreating the American Girl historical stories in our home and are delighted to help you do the same. Just launched from the shipyard, we are pleased to announce the arrival of the newest vessel in the Lemon Bay Fleet: the heirloom Two-Doll Rowboat. Our master shipwright has reworked our skiff design into a roomy rowboat, comfortably seating two dolls with ample room for stowing any gear needed for a day on the water. These boats are NOT WATER TIGHT however, and are not to be used in water. A few yard of blue felt and a good imagination make for a great river, lake or sea!
Our heirloom boats have been handcrafted using several woods: mahogany plywood, oak, cherry, and pine. Each boat comes with two oars and the gunnel drilled with two oarlock holes. We also offer the boat with four oars and four drilled hole in the gunnel if both dolls wish to row. To purchase with four oars, please select the option “Rowboat 4 Oars” from the drop-down menu. Because our children, and now yours, will be handling these boats we offer them sanded but unfinished so you may paint or finish as you choose. We are happy to wax your rowboat for you using our non-toxic beeswax-based finish for an additional $20.00. To have your boat waxed, please select the option "Rowboat WAXED" from the drop-down menu above.

We are not associated with American Girl® in any way other than being huge fans and collectors and builders of many items that help doll play flourish in our home, and hopefully yours as well!
The love of adventure is one of the trademarks of our family. The other is erring on the side of caution. When we create toys for our children's imaginative play, we seek to impart skills that they will someday apply in life. We try to share our love of adventure and provide a vehicle with which we can teach them how to enjoy the adventure safely. We hope our toys offer this same possibility to you and your family.
Time passes so very quickly. Enjoy the adventure.
