Would never buy another boat

Jurgen Duft bought an Edon TS515 training scull from me about a year ago and is thrilled with it. He said he would never buy another ... boat ... because it is so good. Had me worried for a moment, the way he said it. He says it runs and it runs straight. He rows it in Christchurch Harbour and he was just about to go sculling in it now. He is a very experienced sculler as he is 69 years old but he had a stroke a couple of years ago and his daughter phoned me to ask if it was possible to adapt his VirusBoats Turbo II so that he could scull with one hand only! Talk about being keen. I couldn't think of a way but he recovered fully and I'm delighted that he is still able to go out on the water.

Jurgen asked me if I knew where to get a rate meter so that he could establish how many strokes a minute he was doing so I recommended Davies Row Tech to him. I use a RateMate myself and it has never let me down.
