Nice satisfying work, isn't it, Garland? Two years ago I boought a '75 Coffey racing single that had wood framing, etc., but a Kevlar hullskin.
I redid a good bit of her, including the paint job, and named her Zihuatenejo after the West Mexico harbor. That's the place the Andy Dufresne character dreams about and ends up at in the 'Shawshank Redemption' movie.
It's funny how rowing shells so often get christened with such long names. It probably comes from a tradition of the boats being named after rich donors: Henry Binghamton Wigglesworth IV, or some such! The long names look okay anyway.
I stored my single at a local boat club .. from where she suddenly and frustratingly disappeared last winter. GRRR
