    Hmmm...coming from Mr "Yours will be more 'catch-drive-CRAB-release' " I hardly think so. I'm good at kayaking, but that has much shorter blades. I doubt I will be an amazing rower.

    Erm, there's not actually that much of the Cam that is rowable - there's a lock further up. I don't really know if they row on different stretches to be honest, just usually at different times.

    Edit: oooh, 4000! Post slut queen!
