How is it as a rowing shell?
I want to buy a modest sailboat, and saw this here. My sense from reading the posts here is that it is not a great sailboat, but does work.
I already have an Alden 18 rowing shell which I use maybe once a week. It would be great to economize on the number of boats. If I could buy the Saroca as a sailboat that I could occasionally use as a rowing shell...
So how does it compare to a Alden 18 as a rowing shell? It is 15" wider, so it must be rather slower, but I am more concerned about whether it still feels like a rowing shell (which the Alden barely does...)
Also, I don't see the sliding seat (or anything else for that matter) for sale on the Saroca website. How are they sold?
