I'm a huge fan of wooden-composit design boots. Best known in Europe would be Carl Douglas which is a very reliable boat. Information about those boats is easily found on the internet, how they row and such.
But I came across another design boat manufacturer. Which would be Levator Boat Works LTD. It's a company stated in Canada and started in 1989 by Jürgen Kaschper (yeah the son of). So there's enough experience in the boat building industry over there.
Carl Douglas is a common boat here in The Netherlands, but Levator... I've never even seen one and I highly doubt that there even is one in The Netherlands.
When I talk about design boats, i talk about their Levator - Flight
Or their Levator - Legacy found on the same homepage.
The boats are quitte expensive. If I say they're $11,690.00 USD for a single you'd probably never even buy one. For a poor student like me it's even untinkable to own one, but you never know. With the current dollar rate it gets pretty interesting, so I'm here to win some information about them.
hoping that some of you guys have information/experience about/with them.
How do they row, are they stable or do they fall easily. Do they row in a straight course or do they get blown away by the wind easily (like the CD). How long does their stiffness lasts.
How would you compare them to Carl Douglas boats? And how are they in competition.
All information about them is welcome.
