> Reminds me a a flyer that Mel brought back from the UK Coaches Conference several years ago - it was for a circular tub-like craft with four rowing positions that effectively meant that the thing spun round (direction dependent on whether it was bowsiders or strokesiders and numbers of each). Not seen anything about it since so I can only speculate that it didn't take off...
I remember seeing the circular device on display a few years ago, at Henley I think. It didn't look very practical.
