Dispatched for victuals for the captain’s table or canvas for a sail blown away in a storm, gigs were invaluable when in port or moored outside. Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, needed minimum crew, and was quick to dispatch. When stowed, it nested in the long boat or pilot boat secured in the center of the main deck. Our lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gigs are not seaworthy, but they most certainly look like it! Clinker build, they add flair and atmosphere to any room, and display shelves turn them into fun cabinets and bookcases.
Whether you refer to it a bosun or boatswain gig, this boat bookcase will add style and function to any room. Unique bookcase design looks like a standing row boat with boat shaped shelves, stylish boat shaped furniture is the perfect nautical decor for your boat house, beach house, pool house or lake house.
Bookcase or Bookshelf dimensions: 26.8"L x 12"W x 72.8"H, Weight: 30 lbs.
