i'm trying to gain experience behind the sticks in hopes of getting my boat in the future. also, preparing myself for a some trips this summer. if anyone has a boat and needs someone to row for them (to get some fishing in), i'd be more than happy to row, pay for your shuttle, and some beer. all i ask is that you tell me when i'm doing something wrong. i've had a good instructor showing me how to get into the zone while avoiding obstacles. i think i managed pretty well.
