info/experience with Loudon row boat : LUSENET : Open-water rowing : One Thread

I am considering purchasing a Loudon row boat. I would like feedback from owners of this craft ... do you consider it an efficient rowing craft? cruising speed? likes? dislikes? I reside in Stamford, CT (Long Island Sound), would like the opportunity to test row one of these crafts. Appreciate your feedback. Thanks! GY

Go to the following site and see the experiences of someone that rowed a Louden from Florida to Maine... He did the inland route from NY to New Orleans in something else and then switched to the Loundon for the "coastal" route from the Gulf to the NE.

He also has a new book out about the trip which I am in the process of reading: On the Water: Discovering America in a Rowboat

... very enjoyable read.

Regards, Andrew Menkart
