Now the Edon is by definition a training scull, it's only 5.13 meters long, is relatively draggy compared to a true racing scull so thoughts on the back straight usually turn to something thin, long and pointy, made of carbon and kevlar and impossibly fast.
Then common sense sets in - for me? No. Completely daft. I'd break it, fall out of it and get eaten by an alligator, and it wouldn't even fit in my garage. It would cost a few times more than the Edon and I couldn't row it about the little "kayaky" inlets all over our coast. All in all, even if one day I can afford the carbon fibre shell and find somewhere to store it, I'll still be using the Edon regularly for what it does so well - keep me dry and get me fitter day after day after day - bangs, scrapes an' all. Those Edon ozzies did a good job.
Fastest time ever today - must be the new red grips.
