Rowing Equipment

There is often a substantial opportunity cost associated with removing conventional wing riggers in order to maximize the storage space in the boathouse. Many athletes and crews will argue the time taken to dismantle each boat after the session comes at a high price for the amount of space gained. How much space is gained from storing the boat and riggers separately?

Although we are totally biased with regard to who has the best rowing storage solutions, we wanted to know how other clubs managed their boathouse oar storage. In our previous post, we saw a diverse range of horizontal storage applications (Read Part I here). In part II, we will focus our attention on vertical racking solutions. Part II - Vertical Racking Solutions Single Oar Vertical Rack A simple solution for smaller clubs, is the single oar vertical arrangement, as seen below. By lining the

Although we are totally biased with regard to who has the best rowing storage solutions, we wanted to know how other clubs manage their boathouse oar storage. Aside from such a diverse range of methods, we discovered some particularly innovative solutions from within our community. We prefer to store our oars vertically. You can fit a larger number neatly into a smaller space, which frees up more room in your boathouse for other equipment and they are easy to retrieve when needed. But

This week, the team at Rowperfect had a chance to catch up with the founder and director of Space Saver Rowing Systems (SSRS), Douglas Lumsden. He shared with us what has been happening recently with SSRS, as well as reflecting back on where the company has come from and what the future holds for rowing boat racking and oar storage products. An interview with SSRS's Douglas Lumsden Douglas, for those who have just discovered SSRS, can you briefly describe what the company does? [fusion_builder_container

It's your first time running a maintenance check on your shell, but you are new to rowing and don't quite understand what everything is, or does yet.  Let Space Saver teach you rowing boat maintenance in our simple guide. The coach isn't expecting you to pull the boat apart and rebuild it brand new, but you need to understand the basics of how things should be working. Below is an easy to follow guide to looking after some of the more introductory components

Do the standard red shade of SSRS oar racks clash terribly with your club colours? Have you been searching aimlessly for a paint colour that will match perfectly with your lavender purple and tumeric yellow oar blades? Space Saver Rowing Systems feel your pain. That's why we have taken the time to bring you this super handy RAL Colour Conversion chart so we can custom-colour YOUR oar hanging racks. We use powder coated (RAL) colours, for the best finish on our products. Because there are a wide number of colour coding

Are we there yet?? That is the second worst question you can ask on a trailer drive, the first is "What state do you think the other half of the boat is in?".  Some reading this may have plentiful experience in driving large things long distances and on winding roads, and some may be reading this on their cell phone in the drivers seat about to hitch up for the first time.  Hopefully everyone can learn a few helpful hints here.

One rowing club (and probably countless other innovative individuals) have adapted the standard Concept 2 Erg to another “core” purpose. The Saratoga Rowing Club director, Eric Catalano, claims his athletes have been using the ergometers to train their cores since the mid-nineties. The inspiration, he recalls,

Do you struggle find the right equipment when you need it? Don't worry, we're sure you're not alone.When your club boat shed houses 40+ pairs of sculls, it can seem impossible to keep everything stored neatly, right? The solution?

No, not the friendly piece of aluminium lying on the boat house floor, we’re talking about the guy yelling at you for stepping on the aforementioned piece of aluminium.  We’re going to take a quick look at how Coaches can better understand and get along with their rigging staff.  This is not a play-by-play how to get along with each other (that would be a 300+ page book and probably only cover Tuesdays, stay tuned for the other six books!
