Used before the Great War, metal row boats are small boats that were designed and equipped primarily for fishing, usually in freshwater such as lakes, rivers, and streams.
The boat features bench seats that permit the angler to cast to any position around the boat and is propelled by an outboard or trolling motor. Some variants have oars, and some have motors on the back.
Metal row boats are found throughout Appalachia, usually found on the shores of lakes and rivers, or under the waterline. They can also be found in boathouses and in garages, or towed behind vehicles. Specific examples of locations include:
- Deathclaw Island
- New Gad
- Spruce Knob campground
- Pioneer Scout camp
- Summersville Docks
- Tanagra Town
Metal row boats appear in Fallout 76.
