Re: Forum Flyers

Thanx for the tickle, Martin. Started on the erg in June 2014. As per stats line, my annus mirabilis :lol: was 2016. Doesn’t get easier but certainly kinder to old bones than traffic jamming on a road bike.

Re: Fan Scroll housing

So all the drag calcs seem to end at the perforated band. My experience with my home-brewed deflector installed was a drop in df against df without. It appears that a flow restrictor (back pressure) on the exhaust acts to produce an effect identical to that produced by closing down the valve/shutte...

CTC (I follow no one department): The old Acme, AA, AAA, Aardvark first in list trick is alive and well in the CTC directory. The period now trumps the first letter of the alphabet as the goto for coveted no-scroll access to one’s entry ID. Currently hasn’t developed beyond one dot Joe Blow and two ...

Very nice! Cheap and cheerful CBreeze. Reminds of my personal fave— the Blojack.

Re: My Age

I have a family friend missing a leg owing to a DVT. You have both of yours. You can row but should you? If you were shy about asking the attending physician after treatment, ask now. You still get to decide for yourself.

Re: Forum Flyers

I understand rest days falling on the start date of the FTC. I do not understand “affiliates,” whatever that word may mean or once meant, who are mia or from action year after year?

Hi Flyers,
Happy to say I posted up with 14,700 meters for the team today -- including a new PB on the 5K for the Cross-Team Challenge! I hit 18:48.0, knocking 7.5 seconds off my previous PB in the 5,000. Keep rowing, team!
Two birds with one stone, one a PR! Definitely full use of gun.
