The Class A Scow is the largest of the Inland Scows at 38 feet in length and 8 feet abeam. This ultra-high-performance racer is designed for a crew of 6 people or more if needed. The National Class A Scow Association (NCASA), governs its scantlings and other rules. The A Scow has enjoyed a resurgence in competitive racing since it was retooled in 1979 and converted to fiberglass construction. The boat is nearly the same size and shape as the original 1890’s boats built by J. O. Johnson at Johnson Boat Works but it now enjoys all the modern, rigging and sophisticated gear of this century.
