me. As a start my cousin and I bought an old boat, mostly held
together by tar, and by way of brightening up the colour scheme we
painted the floor with white paint over the tar. This was not entirely
satisfactory, as the tar turned the paint to a sort of unwholesome muddy
colour, which refused to dry; so then we had to buy caustic soda to
remove both tar and paint and begin all over again. When we got

them he will be about the perpendicular.
Now comes that part of a stroke which on
a slide is most effective. The body from
seat. All the time that the body is thus
swinging back the legs should be extending,
and the pace of extension should be regu-
lated according to the length of.slide. In
fixed seat rowing, should contract, and row
swinging back; they should not, however,
begin to bend until the body is well past
the perpendicular. The oarsman must bear
in mind that the moment for finishing his
slide should be regulated not by the length
of the slide, but by the length of his
swing, and the latter should go well back
until his body is at an angle of
about thirty degrees beyond the
perpendicular. Suppose he has a long slide
and he decides, either from fatigue or
because he need not fully extend himself,
to use only part of his slide; or suppose he
is changed from a boat fitted with 11-inch
slides to one with 9-inch ditto he must not
when using the shorter slide allow his legs
to extern as rapidly as they did when
they had a longer distance to travel. If
he fails to observe this he will " hurry "
his slide and will bring it to an end before
the swing is completed, thus rendering the
latter part of the swing helpless for want
of due leg-support. If slide and swing are
not arranged so as to act in concert, it is
far better that a balance of slide should
remain to be run out after the swing has
finished than vice versa. The legs can
always push, and so continue the stroke
even if the body is rigid, but the body
cannot conversely do anything effective for
the stroke when once the legs have run
their course. The recovery on a sliding
seat is not quite the counterpart of that on
a fixed seat. On the fixed seat the recovery
should be the converse of the stroke, i. e,
the arms which came in latest while the
out first, while the body is beginning its
return swing, and just as the first part of
the stroke was performed with straight
arms and swinging body, so the last part
of the recovery should disclose a similar
pose of arms and body; but upon a slide
there is not exactly a transposition on the
recovery of the motions which are correct
for the stroke.
they cannot well be too lively off the chest
and in extension because the knees require
more clearing on slides, and the sooner the
bands are on the safe side of them the less
return of the blade. But as regards the
relations between slide and swing these
they did to each other during the stroke.
The pupil was enjoined not to let
