Beam At Waterline
The Mould 136 is the boat of choice for Heavyweight Women and Lightweight Men in the country. It is designed for a 65-80kg crew weight and is 7.94m in length. It was built around the success of our most popular single mould, the M26. Our design team has modified and improved the highly successful design of the M26 to bring you the M136. With improved stiffness and rigidity, this boat is commonly rowed by lightweight men and heavyweight women, the AIS and state institutes of sport.
The boat has been rowed successfully at a crew weight of up to 83kg, however the Mould 138 will be more appropriate for an 80-90kg crew weight.
"After rowing a second hand scull and club boats for 5 years, I decided to take the plunge on a new boat. After much research and advice from my rowing friends, I chose a Sykes 136 mould and have not looked back! From the first contact with Sykes to discuss my rowing needs to the delivery of the boat, I could not have wished for better service and confidence that I was making the right choice on such a big investment. As a masters rower, I think it is critical to not only have a boat that " fits" but you also need to be able to manage all the off water activities in boat handling. This boat is light to carry and manage on land but very sturdy and comfortable on the water. I did not expect to adapt to it as quickly as I did and with as much comfort. It is simple to navigate, from the quick release riggers to adjustments to span and height. Whilst I always have aspirations at some success in the brief time time that I have been racing, since taking ownership of my new boat, I would be equally happy with the great enjoyment that I now have just rowing this boat- it is beautiful"

“I have been rowing my 136 single scull for 12 months now. Before my scull I was using school boats and they were much heavier and full of holes. When I first rowed the scull it took some time to get comfortable because it sat out of the water more than the sculls at school but after that it glides through the water. The boat is really nice to race in. So far I have taken it to Rockhampton for Qld States and to Sydney for the nationals. I feel that now I have a better scull I can get the best out of my rowing and also it will help me with injury prevention.”
