Bosun's Gig Lapstrake Boat Book Shelf

Dispatched for provisions for the Captain’s table or to take the crew on shore leave; "gigs" were invaluable when in port or moored outside.

Measurements: Height: 73" x Beam width: 27" x Depth: 12"

Actual weight 28 lbs. Usually ships within 1 business day.

A real designer accent this beautiful coastal book shelving furniture is rich in design, very well built, and wonderfully utilitarian.

Referred to as rowboats by land-bound folk, a gig was easy to lower overboard, handled by one sailor, and was quick to dispatch. When stowed, it nested inside the long boat secured on the main hatch. Our lapstrake (overlapping strips of wood) gigs are not seaworthy, but they most certainly look like it! Clinker-built, they add a distinctive flair to any room, and display shelves turn them into fun displays and bookcases.

Sorry, this item is too large for International shipment.

Usually ships the next business day.
