My old club, Mortlake Anglian, has some rather nice photos in its
gallery,

Including a slender lady hoisting one of Carl's masterpieces as though
it were weightless:

And one from HWR which is just *so* Henley:

It is.

These days the maestro builds them at zero mass, but includes a
gravity-generating chip which may be activated by remote control whenever
they are weighed at a regatta, thus recording precisely 14kg for the benefit
of the FISA panjandrum.

Nice pic, boat n'all - but can anyone tell me why she is standing on the
river side of the boat to carry it out? Think about it... you'd get out on
the bank side, put your sculls down, and then lift it out from the bank
side, surely?

Unless Mortlake Anglian has some strange ritual, whereby you don wellies and
walk around the boat in the water...

Phil.

I took that one up with Sue (the sculler), after David Henderson had
pointed me to the picture.  I suggested that, after so long boating from
the other side of the river, the recently relocated MAABC members had
forgotten how to get in/out from the other side of their boats.

Apparently the reason is more to do with the combined effects of past
injury & a long outing.

Hey, why be the same as everyone else?!  And it's something they can't
do up at Eton.

Yup!  I liked the boat too.

Cheers -
Carl

"she" looks like Sue Appelboom, probably the top GB women's lightweight sculler
over the past 10 years. I think you can assume she's thought about it.
