    I have rowed traditionally constructed guide-boats and can assure you
      that these "modern" boats perform every bit as well as the originals.
        A full range of well-thought out accessories is available, including
                                      superb oars and hardware.
       PS:  Their boats are routine winners in the Blackburn Challenge!
