    yeah i sculled quite a bit, and did 9 hours 53 minutes training a day, waking up at 4:07 am daily.
    but the routine wasn't strenuous enough, so i moved on.

    I don't row professionally or anything, but i am a really great rower.
    I've even gone only a couple of seconds outside the british record for 2000M (solo, using a rowing machine in this instance), which i know isn't that great actually, but is still quite impressive.

    No. You just have to turn the boats so they are facing front to back, as oppose to sidewards. That way they'll fit, no problem.

    Hang on.
    Have i misinterpreted the q?
    I'm good at rowing too, although i hate having to do it.
    I really dont see why people can't talk to each other properly and reasonably, without having to row.

    it takes a little while to learn, but one gets the BIGGEST satisfaction once the technique has been honed - you can feel the boat move smoothly underneath your body, the rhythmic, even movement, and the little clunks as your blade goes in and comes out of the water... it's probably one of the best sensastions i've experienced, esp if i'm rowing with a crew, and everyone is rowing perfectly.

    by the way, no innuendo was intended above

    Oh right! I meant rowing. I hate rowing with my family and everyone falls out with each other! I've never tried proper rowing though, I prefer a pedalo.

    I think, that Amb misinterpreted the question, you misinterpreted his misinterpretation, then i posted, causing further misinterpretation, and now we are in a situation where we are trying to interpret, but end up minsinterpreting, the misinterpretation of the misinterpretation of the misinterpretation of the original rowing question.

    ROFL!!! I didn't actually misinterpret the question (it was a bit obvious from reading the other posts what the thread was about!!) - I wanted to see if I could confuse people!!! :rolleyes:

    I can!!!

    fyi - I'm a girl.
