Translation - "In pig boat which makes for extra training, eg. as though I was paddling with a 2-4 of beer in a dry bag hanging off the back in decent sized chop."
This boat is actually pretty fast... unlike the others at the cottage. Popik paddling in third pic I think
... I actually dug out the old Blue Beast (Pamlico) yesterday, but could bring myself to paddle it.
Ah, I stand corrected. I had a different boat in mind. One which debuted at LR&S one year.
That was the blue beast! It's still 'alive' but has a slow leak due to a faulty patching job after I finally 'dragged' a hole in it. :-)
