I have been rowing the Teifi skiffs at Langstone Cutters a lot over the last year and poor old Snarly has been languishing rather, so I had forgotten how the oars feel.
Unfortunately, the buttons (the green and red collar thingies) can't be adjusted enough to bring the handles together because the leathers (the plastic sleeve thingies) are not long enough. I don't want to shorten the oars because that would mean losing the nice new rubber grips as well as ruining them for the future project.
So there is nothing for it but to suck it up and use the short oars. It still beats staying on land though.
Today, the DCA/HBBR sails round to Prinsted for lunch at the great little cafe in the marina. Full English for lunch, yum yum.
