I noticed you said Vespo’s were expensive… My OCD kicked in and I felt the need to point out that it is near the lower end of the shell price spectrum… Vespo 8+: 30-38k Hudson 8+: 55-60k Empacher 8+: 80-100k
I think it's really funny how you think you're really good at rowing. Reality check, a 7:56.2 is not a good time. Maybe for your team it is. People in my B boat novice year had better erg times than that. I think you need to learn the word "humble." That's cool that you think you're good, but stop acting like you're the best rower in the world & so knowledgable about the sport; you're not. Don't say, "It's a good time considering my weight and height" b/c I'm short and small for crew as well.
and I’m allowed to be proud of my time, even if you think it’s bad. I dropped a lot of time to get that score.
as for being not knowledgeable… just because I haven’t rowed for 5 years, doesn’t mean I don’t know the sport. Sure, i may not know it AS WELL as a lot of rowers, but I still know the sport. Anyways. Sorry that you have all these misconceptions about me, but if you message me un anon maybe we can talk and you can realize I’m not as ignorant as you think I am.
