Test Row: 2/18/10

Today was an absolutely gorgeous day and the forecast is looking good for tomorrow as well. I had a couple of adjustments that I made to the S.C.P. (Spring Creek Pram) and decided that it’d be nice to take it out to my local Mercer Slough for a test row. I must say that I am impressed with how easily it glides in the water and the light weight makes it easy to load and unload by myself.

I also brought along my Cataract mini mags and gave them a try, but Im going to have to rope wrap the shafts and remove the Oar rites as they hit the top of my thighs in the boat. The oars that came with the boat are fine, they have a lightweight aluminum and adjustable shafts with curved plastic blades. They have Scotty locks and made it effortless to row. I ended up rowing the distance that it would take from the Pass Lake launch to the very north end of the lake.

It was nice to take the t-shirt off and catch some vitamin D rays. Evidently a friend of mine was also thinking the same thing, yurtle the turtle. Im gathering my stuff and preparing for Pass Lake tomorrow, report to follow. The photos didn’t turn out too bad, seeing as how I took them with my iPhone.
