What kind of boat will you guys be using?

By financial preference, and if they'll allow it, one of the rowing association's Swift FISA coastal.

If the politics get too obnoxious, I may well just buy my own. I wish I could try a Race1 Wavecutter. Other boats in it's class doesn't have the open stern. I've a query in for shipping costs from Oz to here. And too bad they don't have a double version. It's not that the double is faster, it's that you can jam a musubi or a ripe banana in your mouth and not loose forward motion.

best,
Michael

Well, whatever you end up with is better than the other 99.9999% of humanity. I am super jealous. I'll be in my driveway rowing my measly hour and thinking of guys like you and Thor Heyerdahl! Kon-Tiki had more drag than the Wavecutter, so I am sure you'll be fine!
