Simbo at Barton Turf
Simbo the One Sheet Wonder went to the HBBR event on Barton Broad on the top of the car. I took her round the island formed by the channels to Barton Staithe to test out the new, higher rowlock position and it worked really well. I had also bought a pair of 6ft straight oars on eBay the week before and they were perfect for the little boat.
I left Simbo on the staithe with an open invitation for anyone to use her, and here is Gavin Atkin giving her a workout. Gavin's son Ewan is rowing the new Ella skiff in the background.
Thanks to Chris Perkins for the picture - and there are lots more at the HBBR website.
