A Change of Pace
Getting ready for the US Gondola Nationals, my four-man team got together tonight to take a spin on the water.
We arrived to realize that one of the gondolas had fresh paint on her
(I should have known that - I ordered it),
one gondola was missing the floorboards
(because they're in my yard - also with fresh paint),
and Steve had just taken off on the only other gondola in the water.
So we decided to take the pupparin out with four oars.
It was a good exercise in balance, and fun to get the boat up and moving.
Four guys in a light boat can really get going fast.
Will we be able to get a gondola moving that fast? Not likely.
But it was a great training exercise.
The view wasn't bad either.
