Double Scull (2x)

Double sculls (2x) are small boats for two people with two oars each.

Double sculls do not have coxswains.

Most double sculls do not have a rudder, but if one is fitted,  steering is normally done with a special swiveling foot stretcher.

The length of a double scull is approximately 10.4m (34 feet)

The minimum weight of a double is 27 Kg (59 pounds)
