the curse of the tempo scow

Post by ianmgds » Sun May 01, 2011 9:12 pm

What a frustration. Had the tempo scow for 16 months and only been on the water 3 times. First a capsize after 20 mins due to my inexperience and stupidity, rescue boat and a round of applause from the watching throng. Second broke the camshaft on the car on the way to the water only to be in the doldrums for an hour and row the dinghy to shore. Finally today, too much wind for me and couldnt get out,no space to reach into the headwind. after 2 hours a guy in a laser got out only to capsize 3 times in 5 minutes. What joy.

Anyone want perhaps the last wooden tempo scow in the country cos i think its cursed!!....

Well said, or at least for me it would be school instead of work.
