Woke up around 8am still pretty worn out but I was determined to try out the Alden Rowing Shell I had purchased at the auction last weekend. I tried to cobble together a trailed so that I didnt have to carry the shell and make multiple trips. I wasted about a half hour and just finally decided to carry it down. Its not super heavy but it is a but awkward. I struggled to figure the technique out and I wasnt helped by the fact that one of the toe straps was broken. Just as I was nearing the fleet and I was getting more comfortable one of my oars broke. The break was in 3 of the seems so when you started pulling on the stroke it would bend in half. Not a huge deal since i got two pair with the boat. I ended up just going from Harbor to the Fleet and back. Good work.
I was late to meet Jack for a hike so we decided to go in the early afternoon before our reservation at Jordan Pond. We decided to do Penobscott vai the Spring Trail. We didnt have a lot of time so I really pushed the pace. Jack was not happy but he matched me all the way and I barely ended him out but it took a lot our o f me.
A few photos of the trek:
