We are developing methods of righting inverted boats which have flooded. What we need from the Ocean rowing community is the donation of a rowing boat we can conduct experiments on.
All equipment can be striped off, we can even make boats watertight again. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee returning the boat in a usable condition. So if you have an old boat sat slowly rotting in your garden, which in your heart of hearts you know will not sell; why not donate it for the development of ocean rowing safety?
Any ideas on the righting of flooded boats are also welcome. Contact Crispin on firstname.lastname@example.org
