I have recently visited the WaterRower web page and was finally able to see
a photo of the machine itself. An enterprising rec.sport.rowing reader
(who shall remain nameless) and myself have come up with a couple of ideas
for "special edition" WaterRowers which might help the company to expand
its international market:
*** The WaterRower "Kitchen Edition" *** A WaterRower (constructed with
your choice of fine woods,naturally) featuring a special accessory
blade/tub package. The "Gentle Blade" setting allows the user to whip up
salad dressings, cake mixes or perhaps a batch of yummy chocolate-chip
cookies. Guilt-free gluttony! Crank up the setting to "Cut Me Now" and
you've got a full-scale industrial food processor/blender. Whip up batches
of Daiquiris in no time! Be the life of the party!
But wait, there's more...
*** The WaterRower "Laundry Edition" *** Got some washing to do? Just
throw in the clothes, some detergent and whammo -- environmentally friendly
washing. "Get your clothes clean, get yourself lean". Use the handy drain
plug to empty out the bin and spin dry your load. Please let extra-dirty
loads soak in the WaterRower tub with diluted bleach for a few minutes to
get your whites their whitest.
*** The WaterRower "Jackson Pollack Edition" Just add paint, remove the
top of the tub and row, row, row!
*** The WaterRower "*** Edition" *** Uses the Kitchen Edition's "Cut Me
Now" blade setting along with the goldfish bowl accessory. They get a
great ride -- once. Imagine the controversial reports on "Hard Copy" and
"Inside Edition"! There's no such thing as bad publicity!
