Mould 848

Sykes Eight Boat Mould 848

Suggested weight range





The M848 eight features a low-wetted-surface cross-section with a lot of camber, which allows it to carry little volume in the ends.What's innovative about the hull design is that it anticipates speed with the stern deck being longer than the bow deck. When other boats approach full speed the bow starts to ride up on the crest of that wave and the stern gets sucked down by the valley the M40 trims evenly forward.

Low-profile Rigger (for 85kg+) image

Low-profile Rigger (for 85kg+)

The M848 eight has a low-profile wing rigger, where the cross-member runs flush with the rigger flange on the side opposite the oarlock. This provides extra clearance for the hands on the recovery, which is necessary since the saxboards/rigger flanges are higher on the M828. This adds a little to the expense, but the extra stiffness afforded by the higher saxboard makes a good deal of difference along all axes.

Dual Locking Backarm image

Dual Locking Backarm

The new sliding adjustable type back arms have a dual locking system. The 6mm bolt locks the backarm in place via an internal nut. The large ribbed plastic locknut is then tightened against the end of the back arm tube. This gives secondary support and ensures the force is well supported. The adjustment range is 70mm which easily allows for span changes on the rigger.
