COMFORT FROM RIGGING

Ever take a long drive while sitting in a car seat that just didn’t fit very well? How about writing an essay paper with a pen that is too big? Or talking on a phone where the cord is way too short? (Remember those days when phones had cords?)
If you’ve ever endured any of these things, or have done anything else with a piece of equipment or with a tool that didn’t fit right, then you have a pretty darn good idea of what it’s like to row with equipment that is not adjusted correctly.

  • It can be terribly uncomfortable.
  • And when it’s uncomfortable, it’s inefficient.
  • And when it’s inefficient, it’s discouraging.
  • And when rowing is discouraging, well . . . it misses the mark.

When you rig, the comfort of the rower has to be of prime concern. Okay, we know that rowing is a tough sport and we like that image, and Martha Stewart has no real place in our sport. However, when people row, especially long distances, the equipment has got to be as comfortable as possible for the rowers because if it’s not, then all but only the truly masochistic rowers will survive

.

Simply put, rigging can help rowing be more comfortable.
