They say that all good things are worth waiting for. For me proof of this may be found in the long awaited completion and delivery of the prototype of our recreational sculling boat. New Zealand’s Labour Day holiday, Monday 24 October 2011, marked delivery of the prototype by boat builder Viv Haar of Carboglass Mouldings and launching on the Hutt River at Petone.
Viv has a number of modifications in mind already and following testing in various water conditions, carrying and storing will set about producing the first of the developed model. These enhancements will include narrowing the splashboard breadth and designing detachable riggers. All this is aimed at producing a product that will meet the needs of recreational rowers of all ages.
