Oxford's Boat Race winner 1829
This boat won the first Oxford and Cambridge University Boat Race at Henley in 1829, the Oxford crew having borrowed it from Balliol College. It was built by Stephen Davis and Isaac King of Oxford in 1828 to a design resembling a cutter. It illustrates the first step in the evolution of boats designed for racing, being almost twice as long and half as wide as an eight-man sea boat of the period. The boat is clinker built of spruce, with main timbers in oak and small ribs in ash. Oars were in ash and of variable length, around 4.3m, with narrow blades.
