RowKraft_004Our story starts with a friendly invitation

Our love of rowing began when some friends invited us to join them at a local “learn to row” class. While our friends haven’t rowed again, we haven’t stopped rowing since.

Off the water, Tom quickly took to the maintenance and equipment, and when he couldn’t find navigation lights for the boats that were designed to function well in the rowing environment, he began to design his own.

Read the RowKraft family story.

The lights are phenomenal and have significantly increased our hull visibility and vastly increased our safety on the water — you can quote me on that! Thank you for an excellent product with great support back up.
