Boats of All Times

Here’s an odd blend of old boats. I have been re reading The Boys In the Boat about the 1936 Olympics and the amazing Washington crew. There’s a lot about the legendary builder of shells, George Pocock. I have a 1964 Pocock single just like the one I rowed in college in the late 1950s. I rowed it in the Head of the Charles Regatta a while back. (That’s where I’m driving in the photo.) Major fun. These days I row a more modern fiber glass single and the Pocock sits in my workout barn.

The steam yacht on the cover of The Practical Navigator is older and smaller than the one described in the book but you get the idea.

If you don’t yet have a copy of The Practical Navigator, do get one (on Amazon) or take a peek at our website chriscrowley.author.com. It’s THE great summer read.
